What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most widely used means for transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you encounter any difficulties.
