Learn about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will require them.
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a designer has done their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any impediments.
