FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other content in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Any of the cloud website hosting packages that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design application pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous sites all at once and to keep them updated without efforts. In case you give the login details to another person to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
