The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions concerning your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be given access to any other files or any sensitive details within your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to run a number of sites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the Internet and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
When you you open a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be provided with access to the really powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s included in our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with a number of different options, apart from the ability to create or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access a different folder. Auto-config files are available for download as well, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and run it on your personal computer. To make the management itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server plans come with the multifunction Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which includes our FTP Manager software tool. It will give you all the controls that you might require so as to administer your FTP accounts easily from one single place. It takes a single click to create or to remove an FTP account and, with 2 more mouse clicks, you can edit the directory that this account can connect to. If you create numerous FTP accounts, you can select how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in descending or ascending order on the basis of their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will allow you to set up an FTP client application like FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your FTP accounts without you having to do anything manually on your end.
