FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods of transmitting web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the best option especially when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud web hosting packages offered by us, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites all at once or provide other individuals with access to separate directories. Once a specific job has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
