FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous means for exchanging files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the very best option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Each of the web hosting packages that we are offering will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other people access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to run multiple Internet sites at the same time and to keep them updated without effort. In case you give the login details to some other individual to do a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
