FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods for transmitting files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re several advantages of using FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux cloud hosting packages offered by us, since we have decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have multiple sites at once or provide other individuals with access to multiple directories. As soon as a given task has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
