What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you encounter any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a specific account or to update its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly in case you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve made a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.
