FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for sending files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without accessing any other folder in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This feature is not restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful functions such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP client applications are also only a mouse click away.
