FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used methods for exchanging web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you need to give a web designer 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 directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each of the cloud web hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites at once and to keep them updated with ease. If you provide the login details to another person for a given task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
