FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transferring files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark 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 of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux website hosting offered by our company, as we’ve decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can manage numerous sites all at once or give other persons access to different directories. Once a specific job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are very powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an extensive number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to modify it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up a new account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive how-to videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
