FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole 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 plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding 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 from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will 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 can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any impediments.
