FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous ways to transmit website files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, including the ability to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any given moment. If you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any impediment.
