FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most commonly used methods of transmitting web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client 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 itself will do the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the very best option especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on.
