What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most widely used methods for transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There are a number of pros of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to 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 other info, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design software application installed on your computer, you will be able to administer multiple websites all at once and to update them without a hitch. If you give the login details to another person to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
