FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring web files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole directories 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 one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting plans that we offer will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to run multiple sites at the same time and to keep them updated without any efforts. If you provide the login information to some other person to carry out a specific task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
