FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for uploading and downloading files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish 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’ll 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. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each of the cloud web hosting packages that we offer will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application installed on your PC, you will be able to administer numerous sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any efforts. In case you give the login info to another individual to perform a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
