FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular methods of transferring web files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will take care of the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart a download/upload when there’s a problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux shared web hosting that we offer, since we have chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can run numerous sites at the same time or give other persons access to different folders. Once a certain job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password for the specific FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
