FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to upload and download files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need 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 preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Any of the cloud website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to grant other people access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at the same time and to keep them updated effortlessly. If you give the login info to another person to carry out a given task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have opted for at signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and block persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual quits the company and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. An elaborate Help database that comprises educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have previous experience.
