FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transferring web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked upon registration, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a specific account any longer, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual quits your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An elaborate Help repository that includes video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any previous experience.
