Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol 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 example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other directory in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Any of the cloud website hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at the same time and to update them without any efforts. In case you provide the login info to some other individual for a particular task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
