FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the 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 used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without accessing any other content in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you come across any problem.

Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
