FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Each of the cloud web hosting plans that we are offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them effortlessly. If you provide the login info to some other person to perform a particular task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we have not put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a given account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have selected a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a hosting plan before.
