FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of transmitting website files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or entire directories 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 set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other folder in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud hosting offered by our company, since we’ve decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can manage numerous Internet sites simultaneously or give other individuals access to multiple folders. Once a particular task has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
