Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of exchanging web files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the cloud hosting
that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. Once a specific job has been done and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
