FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transferring web files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you would not like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you would like several persons to be able to access the same content with totally different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t have any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to modify your sites effortlessly. If you want to stop the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP clients. What’s more, we’ve prepared in-depth step-by-step articles and video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
