FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transferring web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have 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 lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their task without accessing any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each of the shared web hosting packages that we offer will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your home computer, you will be able to administer multiple sites at the same time and to keep them updated without efforts. In case you give the login details to another person to carry out a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
