FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for sending files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will 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. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click.
