FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of sending website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection 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 it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to see any other folder in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished.

For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and the folders that they can connect to.

account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve opted for on the order form, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well.
