FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for uploading and downloading website files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do 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 create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you experience any complication.
