FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most popular means of transmitting files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect option when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux website hosting offered by us, because we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have multiple Internet sites at the same time or provide other persons with access to different directories. Once a specific task has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
