FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for sending website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or entire 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 many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to see any other folder in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Any of the website hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design program installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain numerous Internet sites all at once and to keep them up to date with no effort. In case you provide the login details to some other individual to perform a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
