What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most famous methods for exchanging files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Each of the shared web hosting
plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other persons access to any website in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run multiple websites all at once and to update them without efforts. If you give the login details to another person to carry out a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
