FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widely used means for exchanging website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our Linux web hosting packages. This feature is not limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful functions such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP software programs are also only a click away.
