FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of sending website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main 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 preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the web hosting plans that we offer, as we have decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run numerous websites at once or give other persons access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific job has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
