FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous methods of transferring web files between a computer and a server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or 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 website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting plans that we are offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage multiple sites at the same time and to update them with ease. In case you provide the login details to another person to perform a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
