FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for uploading and downloading files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the 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. FTP is preferred by many 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 web designer, for instance, can do their job without accessing any other folder in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts with access to the very same directory – if you would like different persons to be able to connect to the very same web content with totally different login credentials.
