FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to exchange web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will need 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. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux web hosting packages that we offer, because we have chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can have multiple sites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. Once a specific job has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to update its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without effort in case you do not need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files anymore. For your convenience, we have created a number of educational videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting package before.
