FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with any of our cloud website hosting. This functionality is not limited, so with our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful functions such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP client apps are also only a click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers are pretty powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check our exhaustive educational videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
