What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most widely used ways to upload and download web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload in case there is a problem with the connection or the ability to have 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-mails or other information, which makes it the best option particularly in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps 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
Any of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other people access to any site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to manage numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date with no effort. In case you provide the login info to another person for a particular task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
