FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread methods for exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the perfect option particularly if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the cloud plans that we are offering, since we have decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can have multiple websites all at once or give other persons access to different directories. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
