FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to upload and download web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will 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. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to see any other content in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux web hosting packages that we offer, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple folders. As soon as a certain job has been done and you don’t want that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts that can access the very same directory – in case you would like several persons to be able to access the exact same content with entirely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not involve any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to administer your files and to modify your websites without effort. If you want to restrict the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP programs. In addition, we have compiled elaborate step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.
