FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods for transmitting files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly in case 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 resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with any of our Linux hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can access. Useful functions such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software applications are also just a mouse click away.
