FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without accessing any other directory in the hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our Linux web hosting. This service is not restricted, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the folders that they can access. Useful options such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP apps are also only one click away.
