FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select 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 of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software program installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you provide the login info to some other person to carry out a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
