FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most famous methods for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There are several advantages of employing FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the best solution when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud plans that we offer, since we have decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can run multiple websites all at once or grant other individuals access to separate folders. Once a given job has been fulfilled and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting packages, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
