FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting website files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC 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 used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud hosting that we’re offering, because we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or give other people access to different directories. As soon as a certain job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
