Discover FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will require them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread methods of transmitting website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without having to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting plans that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites all at once and to update them with ease. In case you give the login info to another individual to do a specific task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
