File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most widespread means for exchanging web files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the shared hosting offered by us, because we have chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can run multiple sites at once or grant other persons access to multiple folders. Once a certain task has been carried out and you would not like that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
