Learn about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular means for transmitting files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any given time. If you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any complication.
