FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to upload and download files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to see any other folder in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the shared web hosting plans offered by us, as we have decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can manage numerous websites simultaneously or provide other individuals with access to different folders. Once a particular task has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can just delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
