FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need 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. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with each of our Linux cloud hosting. This feature isn’t limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Handy options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software apps are also just a click away.
