FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for uploading and downloading web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown 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. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have detailed help articles, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any predicament.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts that can access one and the same folder – in case you would like different users to be able to access the same website content with different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not involve any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to modify your websites without any effort. In case you would like to stop the access to your website content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a few mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP client apps. Also, we’ve prepared elaborate help articles and how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
