FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared hosting plans that we offer, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can have numerous sites at once or provide other individuals with access to different folders. As soon as a particular task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single click to manage different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
