What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used means for sending files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the best solution especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux shared website hosting
offered by us, since we have chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can have multiple websites all at once or give other people access to multiple directories. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
