FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without accessing any other content in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting packages that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software application installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them updated with ease. If you provide the login details to another individual to carry out a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
