FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread means of exchanging files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the 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 particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the very best option particularly in case you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your home PC, you will be able to administer multiple websites at the same time and to keep them updated without efforts. In case you provide the login details to another individual for a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
