FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other folder in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our Linux website hosting. This feature is not limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one mouse click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software apps are also just a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a specific account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account with ease if you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected a number of instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a website hosting plan before.
