FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while 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 folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any complication.
