FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transmitting web files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like 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 shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each of the cloud web hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to create unlimited 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 web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program installed on your PC, you will be able to administer numerous sites all at once and to update them with ease. If you give the login details to some other individual for a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
