FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to transfer website files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without accessing any other folder in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with each of our cloud web hosting plans. This functionality is not restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Handy options such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP clients are also just a click away.
