What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widespread ways to exchange files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, including the option to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the very best solution when you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use any third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to run multiple sites simultaneously and to update them without any efforts. In case you provide the login info to another individual to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
