FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as 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 you’ll have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any impediments.
