File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most widespread ways to transfer website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to use 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-mails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an extensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have any difficulties.
