FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for exchanging files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux cloud hosting that we are offering, as we have decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple sites at once or give other people access to different folders. Once a specific task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
