Discover more about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most widely used means for exchanging website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re several benefits of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with any of our Linux shared web hosting packages. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can access. Useful functions such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP software apps are also just a mouse click away.
