FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to exchange web files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the best option particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux web hosting offered by our company, because we’ve chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can manage multiple Internet sites at once or give other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a given job has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove that account with several clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
