FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means for uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There are several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best option particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each of the shared website hosting packages offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software app pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to administer multiple sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date with no effort. If you provide the login info to another person to perform a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
