FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot 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 designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given time. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you run into any problem.
