FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means of sending web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will handle the rest. There are several pros of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution especially when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an extensive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you encounter any problem.
