FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used ways to exchange website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the connection or the ability to have 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, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any obstacle.
