FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have in-depth help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any impediment.
