FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to 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, emails or other information, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our cloud web hosting. This feature is not limited, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one mouse click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and what directories they can access. Handy options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP client programs are also just a mouse click away.
