File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most commonly used ways to transmit website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There’re several pros of employing FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection and the option to have 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, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Any of the website hosting plans that we offer will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software application installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to manage multiple websites at once and to update them with ease. If you provide the login information to another individual to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
