What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular ways to send website files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal solution if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the hosting that we offer, because we’ve chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can have numerous websites all at once or give other people access to multiple folders. Once a specific task has been fulfilled and you would not like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
