FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other directory in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our cloud hosting. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as changing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software programs are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve opted for during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account anymore, you can simply remove it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is especially useful if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT professional quits the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An in-depth Help database that comprises instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any past experience.
