FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire 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 numerous 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 web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to see any other directory in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux website hosting packages that we offer, since we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or give other persons access to separate directories. As soon as a specific job has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
