Learn more about what FTP really is, what it can do and what is the main advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread means of sending files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each of the cloud web hosting packages that we offer will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your hosting account. If you have a web design software application pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to maintain numerous Internet sites all at once and to update them without any effort. If you give the login credentials to some other person to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
