FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular methods of transferring website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will take care of the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best option especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have any problems.
