FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for sending files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see 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 entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other directory in your web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux web hosting service that we are offering, because we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can run multiple websites at once or provide other individuals with access to separate directories. Once a given job has been done and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can just delete that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to manage different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have opted for during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual departs the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. An elaborate Help section that includes how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any prior experience.
