FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transferring website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an extensive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any impediment.
