FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods for uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several pros of using FTP, among them the ability to resume an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the web hosting plans that we’re offering, because we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple sites at the same time or give other individuals access to different directories. As soon as a particular task has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
