FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them updated without effort. If you provide the login credentials to another individual for a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have opted for during the signup process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT expert leaves the company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An extensive Help database that contains how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any past experience.
