FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange web files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up 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 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 lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder 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. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our Linux cloud web hosting. This feature isn’t limited, so with our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can access. Useful options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software programs are also only a click away.
