FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire directories 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 connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other content in your website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you need at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any problem.
