FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for uploading and downloading web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Each of the web hosting plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any website in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your home PC, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without any efforts. In case you provide the login details to another person to carry out a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
