FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP 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 directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you run into any complication.
