FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous ways to exchange website files between a computer system and a server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the best option particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This service isn’t limited, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Useful functions such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP programs are also just a click away.
