The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to put website content access limits with regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t get access to any other files or any private information within your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without efforts.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each of our shared hosting
, offers a feature-loaded FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account requires literally just one mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any given moment will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can quickly find the one that you want. You’ll also be able to check what folder a given account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you wish to connect to your hosting space using an FTP client program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your PC – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. Besides, you can view the full list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you’ll be able to take advantage of a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and specify what directory it will have access to with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-work-with interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up will be displayed in the exact same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to quickly locate the account that you need. Changing the access path for an active account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas deleting an account or updating its password requires one mouse click as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use config files for famous desktop FTP software applications such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
