FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous ways to upload and download files between a PC and a server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There are a number of pros of employing FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the best option particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our Linux website hosting. This feature is not restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just a click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Handy options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP apps are also just a click away.
