Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most famous methods of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting packages that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design program installed on your computer, you will be able to administer multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you give the login information to another person to do a specific task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
