File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most popular methods of exchanging files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload when there’s a problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the hosting services offered by us, because we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites simultaneously or give other people access to separate folders. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
