Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer 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 numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without accessing any other directory in the website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Each of the web hosting
plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design software application pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to update them without efforts. If you give the login info to another person to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
