Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will require them.
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to see any other directory in your web hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have detailed help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complication.
