Discover FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods of exchanging files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal option when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the shared hosting that we’re offering, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or provide other people with access to different folders. Once a given job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
