FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will 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 one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you need at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complications.
