FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make 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 program window. All you have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other directory in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are amazingly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a large number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction 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 listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check out our detailed how-to videos, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
