FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means of transferring website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will do the rest. There’re several benefits of employing FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design software app installed on your PC, you will be able to maintain multiple sites at the same time and to keep them updated without any efforts. If you provide the login information to another person to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
