The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a particular directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions concerning your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t gain access to any other files or any private data within your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run a number of sites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published on the Internet and subsequently edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our shared website hosting plans
, offers a multifunction FTP Manager tool that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Creating or removing an account requires literally only one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at a given time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to check what folder a certain account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you want to access your web hosting space using an FTP software program like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your personal computer – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can see the complete list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if you have never used a web hosting account before, you won’t have any problem managing any part of your online presence in case you buy a semi-dedicated server
from our company and the FTP part makes no exception. With the FTP Manager, which is included in our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, you will exert complete control over your FTP accounts through a truly intuitive GUI. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you’ll be able to accomplish practically everything – to create or to delete an FTP account, to edit its password, to change the directory that it can access or to make use of auto-config files for FTP client apps such as FileZilla and Core FTP. If you’ve created an immense number of FTP accounts, you will be able to manage them seamlessly, as you can arrange them alphabetically in ascending or descending order either by access path or by username.
