Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous methods of exchanging files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any impediments.
