FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods of transmitting files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run numerous sites simultaneously and to update them with no effort. In case you give the login information to another individual to carry out a given task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
