FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole 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 plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our cloud website hosting plans
. This service isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful options such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP programs are also just a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans
are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting lots of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can watch our detailed video tutorials, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
