FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other folder in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just a click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful functions such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP apps are also just one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you have picked upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person exits your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. An in-depth Help repository that includes how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any previous experience.
