FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread methods of exchanging web files between a PC and a server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several advantages of using FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud hosting offered by our company, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple websites at once or provide other people with access to separate folders. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
