FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other content in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Any of the hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your computer, you will be able to run multiple Internet sites at once and to update them without efforts. If you give the login details to another individual for a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a certain account or to edit its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with no effort if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have selected different instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting plan previously.
