FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up 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 main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. This service isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP programs are also only one mouse click away.
