FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app installed on your home PC, you will be able to administer numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them with no effort. If you provide the login credentials to another person to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
