What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous ways to transmit files between a PC and a server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, including the option to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Any of the web hosting plans that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage multiple websites simultaneously and to update them without a hitch. In case you give the login details to another individual to perform a certain task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
