FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas 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 entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without effort. If you provide the login credentials to another person for a particular task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have chosen during the signup process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a designer or if an IT individual quits your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help section that includes tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have previous experience.
