File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most widely used methods of transmitting website files between a computer and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are several benefits of using FTP, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best solution when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux website hosting offered by us, as we have decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites at the same time or give other people access to multiple folders. Once a certain job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared packages, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
