FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for transferring website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. If you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you encounter any problem.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same directory – if you want several persons to be able to connect to the exact same website content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not have a limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to modify your websites with no effort. If you wish to limit the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP client applications. In addition, we’ve prepared comprehensive help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
