FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for transferring web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Any of the website hosting plans offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design program installed on your home computer, you will be able to manage multiple sites all at once and to update them effortlessly. In case you provide the login info to some other individual to carry out a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an enormous number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you have never used a hosting account previously, you can check out our comprehensive how-to videos, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
