Learn more about what FTP is, what it does and what is the advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods for sending files between a PC and a web server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have detailed help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you come across any impediment.
