FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means of transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there is a problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting plans offered by us will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design app pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to manage numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them without a hitch. In case you give the login information to some other person to carry out a given task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
