FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in your hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we offer, as we have chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple websites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
