FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used means of transmitting files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the very best option when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.

Each of the cloud web hosting plans that we are offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other persons access to any website in your website hosting account.

If you provide the login info to another person to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
