FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used means for transferring web files between a PC and a web server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect option if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux shared hosting offered by us, because we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can have multiple sites at once or provide other people with access to separate directories. As soon as a certain task has been fulfilled and you would not like that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
