FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transmit web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP 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 you have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared web hosting plans offered by our company, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can run multiple websites at once or provide other people with access to multiple directories. As soon as a given task has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can just remove that account with several clicks and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
