FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to send web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect 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 have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

Each of the website hosting packages offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account.

In case you provide the login info to some other individual to perform a particular task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future.
