FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread means for exchanging web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the hosting that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple websites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to separate directories. As soon as a given job has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
