FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux web hosting packages that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can run numerous Internet sites at once or provide other people with access to separate directories. As soon as a specific task has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only a click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts that can access one and the same directory – in case you want several users to be able to connect to the same website content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not involve any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your files and to update your websites with ease. In case you’d like to block the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP programs. What’s more, we’ve compiled comprehensive step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
