The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access limits with regard to your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not obtain access to any other content or any personal details in your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be launched online and subsequently edited using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting plans come with a function-packed, yet intuitive FTP Manager tool, which will allow you to manage all the FTP accounts that you’ve got without effort. The software instrument is an integral part of our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel and apart from setting up and deleting FTP accounts, you can update the password for any existing account with just 2 mouse clicks. You can modify the level of access for any given FTP account just as easily – you’ll just have 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 a number of FTP apps and set up any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by installing that file. For easier and more effective control, you can arrange the accounts alphabetically based on their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed through the simple-to-navigate, custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and everything associated with them, so you will be able to administer all the accounts quickly and effortlessly. It will take a single click of the mouse to create a brand new account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the complete list of your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for a particular account is also easy – you will just have to click on it and pick the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t need to create a brand-new FTP account if you simply wish to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-configuration files for widely used FTP clients such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
