FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widespread means of sending files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program 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 handle the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the very best option if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple sites simultaneously and to keep them updated with no effort. If you provide the login information to some other individual to perform a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
