FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have 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 lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Any of the cloud website hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other people with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage multiple websites all at once and to keep them updated without effort. In case you provide the login details to another person to do a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve opted for on the order page, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT person exits the company and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. An in-depth Help section that comprises tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

If you want, you can even set up multiple FTP accounts for the exact same domain name and give several users their own personal log-in details to access the website content. Each of the three Control Panels will give you the opportunity to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with less than several clicks of the mouse, so even in case you do not have previous experience, you’ll be able to administer an account with ease.
