Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most famous means for exchanging website files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Any of the shared hosting
packages offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design application pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to manage multiple websites at the same time and to update them without any effort. In case you provide the login info to another individual to perform a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized 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.
