FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without accessing any other content in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. If you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have detailed help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you encounter any difficulty.
