FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without accessing any other directory in your website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with any of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This functionality is not restricted, so using our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP clients are also just one click away.
