FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular means for transmitting web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are several benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and 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 web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the best option particularly if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you experience any difficulty.
