The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a certain directory is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions in regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t be given access to any other content or any private info in your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published on the Internet and then edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts easily.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting packages include a multi-feature, albeit user-friendly FTP Manager tool, which will allow you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve created effortlessly. The FTP Manager is an essential part of our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and besides setting up and removing accounts, you’ll be able to edit the password associated with any active account with just two mouse clicks. You can modify the level of access for any specific account just as easily – you will only need to click on the access path for the account in question and then to choose the new folder. Furthermore, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP client apps and set up any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by installing the given file. For easier and more efficient management, you can sort the accounts alphabetically on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to make use of a number of features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a brand new FTP account and specify what folder it will have access to with only a couple of clicks through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve got will be displayed in the same section as well and, for your convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to easily locate the account that you want. Changing the access path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or updating its password requires one click of the mouse as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also download config files for famous desktop apps like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
