FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to upload and download web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared hosting that we are offering, since we have chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites at once or give other individuals access to different directories. As soon as a certain task has been done and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
