FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see 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 whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you want at any given moment. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any difficulty.
