FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to upload and download files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up 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 it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any problem.
