Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for transmitting web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other directory in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your PC, you will be able to run numerous sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without efforts. If you provide the login information to some other person for a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
