FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular means for transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the perfect option especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera.
