FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to see any other folder in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud web hosting plans offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can run numerous sites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to separate folders. Once a given task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to update 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 semi-dedicated server plan that you have opted for during the signup process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account anymore, you can just remove it and stop individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual quits the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. A detailed Help repository that includes video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess previous experience.
