FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods for transferring web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There are several benefits of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click.
