FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to exchange files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other content in the website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have elaborate help articles, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you run into any impediment.
