FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transmitting web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark 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 access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to view any other content in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run numerous sites all at once and to keep them updated effortlessly. If you provide the login details to another individual to do a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
