FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other directory in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an extensive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you experience any impediment.
