FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods for transmitting web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option especially when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared website hosting that we are offering, since we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain multiple websites all at once or give other people access to different directories. Once a given job has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
