What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other folder in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting
plans that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design program pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to manage numerous sites all at once and to keep them updated effortlessly. In case you provide the login info to some other person to do a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
