File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most widely used ways to transfer files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There are several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the option to create 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 other information, which makes it the best option particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design application pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to manage numerous websites at the same time and to keep them updated with ease. If you provide the login details to another individual to do a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
