FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used means of uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will do the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you encounter any problem.
