Learn more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the benefit of acquiring multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transferring website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other directory in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers
are amazingly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting plenty of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a web hosting account before, you can check our detailed tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
