FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed 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. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Any of the shared hosting packages that we are offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other persons access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software program installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to manage numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them updated without effort. If you give the login details to another individual to perform a given task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your website 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 hosting 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’ve selected upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP 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 shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account anymore, you can simply remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT expert quits the firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An exhaustive Help database that includes how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have prior experience.
