FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish 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 entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux website hosting offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can manage numerous sites at once or give other persons access to separate folders. Once a specific job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are astonishingly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a large number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction 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 displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account before, you can check our in-depth video tutorials, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
