FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most widespread methods for uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart an upload/download if there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal solution especially if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you run into any impediment.
