What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread ways to transfer web 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 & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several benefits of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to set up 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, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any complications.
