FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to exchange website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection 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 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 used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our Linux hosting packages. This service isn’t limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client apps are also only a click away.
