FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transferring files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help articles, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you have selected during the registration process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT professional exits the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help database that includes educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have any past experience.
