FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown 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. FTP is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to access any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically.
