FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widespread means of transferring files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. With 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 info, which makes it the ideal solution when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our Linux shared packages. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-connected tasks done. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and what directories they can access. Useful options such as changing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP client applications are also only a mouse click away.
