FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of sending web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. This service is not limited, so with our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as changing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP programs are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t limited this service with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have selected different educational video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.
