FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for sending website files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up 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 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. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to access any other directory in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our cloud plans. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can access. Useful functions such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client programs are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are really powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up an account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate tutorial video clips, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
