File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, represents one of the most famous ways to exchange website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will do the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages that we offer will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to run numerous Internet sites at once and to keep them updated effortlessly. In case you provide the login info to some other person to perform a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
