FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories 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 set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared service that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can run numerous websites all at once or give other persons access to multiple directories. Once a particular job has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and stop worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
