Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will require them.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to exchange website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to view any other directory in the website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Any of the website hosting
packages offered by us will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software application installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous sites all at once and to update them with no effort. If you provide the login info to another individual to do a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t put a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a certain FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who is done with the site and you do not want them to connect to your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled a number of tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a hosting plan before.
