FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared website hosting packages offered by our company, since we have decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites at the same time or grant other people access to multiple folders. Once a given job has been completed and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you have picked on the order form, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT professional departs your company and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An in-depth Help repository that contains instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess any past experience.
