FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make 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 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Any of the shared web hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any site in your hosting account. If you have a web design app pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to run multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you provide the login details to another individual to carry out a certain task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
