FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for sending files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our Linux cloud web hosting packages. This service is not restricted, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one mouse click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP applications are also only a click away.
