What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used means of exchanging web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you run into any impediment.
