FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of exchanging website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in your hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on.
