FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the 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. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other content in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the shared plans offered by us, since we’ve decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can manage multiple Internet sites all at once or grant other people access to multiple folders. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you would not like that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
