What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while 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 lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared hosting service
that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have multiple Internet sites at the same time or give other individuals access to different folders. As soon as a specific job has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve chosen upon registration, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a given account any longer, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is particularly useful if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT individual exits the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help section that comprises instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess prior experience.

Based on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you want to permit a number of individuals to be able to access that folder with their own login credentials. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account before or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything’s done through an easy-to-use web interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
