FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of exchanging web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you 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 lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any difficulties.

If you would like to stop the access to your website content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel.
