FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular means of transmitting website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the best solution especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each of the cloud website hosting packages offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to give other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design software app installed on your home PC, you will be able to run multiple sites at the same time and to update them without efforts. In case you give the login information to another person to carry out a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
