FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods of exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the best solution particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our Linux hosting packages. This feature is not restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Handy functions such as changing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP apps are also only one click away.
