FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous means for transferring files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux website hosting packages that we offer, because we have decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can run numerous websites all at once or grant other persons access to multiple directories. Once a certain task has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
