What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most famous means of uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Any of the shared web hosting packages offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your PC, you will be able to run numerous websites at the same time and to keep them up to date without any effort. If you give the login details to another person to do a given task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
