Discover FTP accounts and about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous methods of transmitting website files between a computer and a server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will do the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting
plans offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you have a web design program pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites all at once and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you give the login information to some other person to do a given task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
