FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transferring files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories 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 of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you run into any problem.
