What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other content in the website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Each of the shared website hosting plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software program pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to manage multiple websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without efforts. In case you provide the login details to some other individual to perform a particular task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
