FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux shared hosting packages. This service is not limited, so using our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Handy options such as changing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP apps are also only one click away.
