FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our shared website hosting plans. This functionality is not limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software programs are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not limited this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected different instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a web hosting package before.
