What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Any of the cloud website hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design application installed on your personal computer, you will be able to maintain multiple websites all at once and to keep them up to date without any efforts. If you give the login information to some other individual to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
