FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of exchanging files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do 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 plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence 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 respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each of the cloud hosting plans offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design application pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous sites at the same time and to keep them updated without effort. In case you give the login details to another individual to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to change its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account with ease in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For your convenience, we have made a number of educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

Any of the three Control Panels will provide you with the ability to set up, to modify or to delete an FTP account in several simple steps and with less than a few clicks, so even in case you do not have previous experience, you will be able to manage an FTP account without any effort.
