FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread ways to upload and download website files between a computer and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart a download/upload in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the best solution if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our Linux cloud web hosting. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful functions such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP programs are also just a mouse click away.
