FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the cloud hosting services offered by our company, since we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple directories. Once a particular job has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can change the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only a click to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT specialist retires from your firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer.
