The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions in regards to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be able to access any other files or any private information in your hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to manage different websites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the Internet and subsequently modified using an FTP account that has access to its very own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
If you open a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be given access to the exceptionally powerful FTP Manager, that’s part of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, besides the possibility to set up or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account will access another directory. Downloadable auto-config files are available too, so you won’t need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the given file for Core FTP, CyberDuck or FileZilla and install it on your computer system. To make the management simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the FTP accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and choose which folder it will access with only a couple of mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate interface. A list of all the accounts that you have created will be available in the very same section as well and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to quickly locate the FTP account that you want. Changing the path for an existing account is as simple as clicking on it and selecting the new path, whereas removing an account or editing its password requires one click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download config files for commonly used desktop FTP client applications like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
