FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting plans that we’re offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any effort. If you give the login details to some other individual for a given task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
