Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the main advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods for uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are several benefits of using FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have detailed help articles, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any complications.

If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a given account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files anymore.
