FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will 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 numerous 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 web designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to view any other directory in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux shared hosting packages that we’re offering, since we’ve decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have numerous sites at once or give other persons access to separate folders. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can simply remove the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
