FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will need 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 preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to access any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can access. Useful functions such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client programs are also just one mouse click away.
