Discover more about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software 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 it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in the website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each of the shared website hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software application pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them up to date without effort. In case you give the login info to another person to carry out a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
