File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most widely used ways to transmit website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There are several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume a download/upload when there’s a problem with the connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best option particularly when you have to provide a web designer with 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 directly from them, without having to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux cloud web hosting offered by us, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous sites all at once or give other people access to different folders. As soon as a certain task has been completed and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
