FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to send files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

This service isn’t restricted, so using our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and the directories that they can connect to. Handy functions such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP applications are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are incredibly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting many sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
