Discover FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will require them.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most widely used methods of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will take care of the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart a download/upload when there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Each of the hosting packages that we are offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other persons access to any site in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run numerous sites at the same time and to update them without any effort. In case you provide the login information to some other person to do a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
