FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to send web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have detailed help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any problems.
