FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark 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 one 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 access any other directory in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given time. If you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any problems.
