FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods for uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection and 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 web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our web hosting. This feature is not restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can access. Useful functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP apps are also only a click away.
