FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or whole 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 one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.

Thus, you can run multiple websites at once or give other individuals access to multiple directories. As soon as a specific task has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can change the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
