File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most widespread means of transmitting files between a PC and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the perfect option especially when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps 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 Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to manage numerous Internet sites all at once and to keep them updated without any efforts. If you give the login details to some other individual to do a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
