What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for exchanging web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have any complication.

For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to edit it, if needed.
