File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most widely used methods of sending website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download if there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the very best option especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared web hosting packages offered by us, since we have chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites at once or grant other individuals access to separate folders. Once a specific task has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
