FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do 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 used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other content in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. If you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have selected a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease in case you have never used a web hosting package previously.
