FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used means for uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart an upload/download when there is 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 particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best option particularly in case you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud website hosting that we are offering, as we have decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can maintain numerous sites at once or provide other persons with access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular task has been accomplished and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
