FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of exchanging web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will need 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. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any problems.
