FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to transmit web files between a computer system and a web server. With 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, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each of the cloud hosting packages that we offer will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to grant other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design app pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to manage multiple sites at once and to update them without effort. If you provide the login information to some other individual for a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, 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

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have picked during the signup process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a given account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT expert departs your company and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. An extensive Help section that contains video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any prior experience.

Any of the 3 Control Panels will give you the ability to create, to modify or to delete an FTP account in a few easy steps and with no more than a few mouse clicks, so even if you don’t have past experience, you will be able to administer an account without any effort.
