FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make 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 program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other content in the website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our cloud hosting services. This functionality is not restricted, so with our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the folders that they can access. Useful options such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP clients are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a given account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you no longer need it – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For your convenience, we have created different tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you have never used a hosting package previously.
