DeployHQ vs FTP
So we've been working with BitBucket and loving it. Great. Version control and remote repository decision made, we can check that off the workflow list.
Next step is obviously deploying the code. Initially I think, open FIlezilla, upload, BAM. However I see flashy things like DeployHQ and Beanstalk. Which leads me to the question, why use a service like this, instead of straight up FTP?

if you deploy from a service, its usually combined with your remote repo, meaning it will check for changes and only sync those up. SO if you make quite a bit of changes to your web app, you don't have to manually pick and upload your changed files--its synonymous with your version control.
