FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other folder in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the website hosting packages that we’re offering, as we have chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can run numerous sites at the same time or grant other persons access to different directories. Once a specific task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
