FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular methods for transmitting web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There are several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud hosting packages that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can run numerous sites at the same time or give other people access to multiple folders. As soon as a given task has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to access your files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just remove that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
