FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders 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 set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we offer, because we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can have multiple sites all at once or give other people access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific job has been done and you do not want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
