FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transmitting web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP client 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 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 mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without accessing any other folder in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans that we offer will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to administer numerous websites at the same time and to keep them updated effortlessly. If you provide the login info to another individual for a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
