FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have 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 preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the cloud website hosting that we offer, because we have chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage multiple websites all at once or grant other persons access to separate directories. Once a given task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting plans, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
