FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need 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. File Transfer Protocol is used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple websites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you do not want to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any problems.
