FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have opted for during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too.
