FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous means of transferring web files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There are a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering, because we have decided not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites at once or give other persons access to multiple folders. Once a certain task has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
