FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole 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 of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other folder in the website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud packages that we are offering, because we have chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at the same time or give other individuals access to different directories. As soon as a certain job has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
