FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of transmitting website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect 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 mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you experience any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a large number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
