FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transmitting website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make 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 program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark 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 connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design program installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run multiple sites at once and to keep them updated without a hitch. If you provide the login credentials to another person for a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
