FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other content in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you experience any difficulty.
