FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used methods of transferring website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will do the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud packages that we’re offering, as we’ve chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can have multiple websites all at once or grant other people access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
