FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transmitting web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to access any other directory in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the web hosting that we’re offering, because we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous websites at once or give other individuals access to different folders. Once a certain job has been accomplished and you would not like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you have picked during the registration process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a specific account any longer, you can just delete it and stop individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT professional quits your company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An extensive Help repository that includes how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have any previous experience.
