FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas 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 whole directories in either direction is to mark 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 of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve 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 popular FTP client programs are also only a click away.
