Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for sending files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need 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 used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to access any other directory in the website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting plans that we are offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to grant other persons access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your computer, you will be able to run numerous websites all at once and to keep them updated with ease. In case you provide the login credentials to another person to carry out a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
