FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular ways to transmit website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

If you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse.
