FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to transmit files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the web hosting that we’re offering, since we have chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple sites simultaneously or grant other individuals access to separate directories. Once a specific job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
