FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used ways to upload and download website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There are several benefits of using FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection or the ability to set up 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, emails or other information, which makes it the best solution if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages that we are offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design app installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them updated without any effort. If you provide the login information to another person to do a certain task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
