The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits regarding your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not obtain access to any other content or any sensitive information within your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to manage different Internet sites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the World Wide Web and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
All our shared website hosting plans come with a multi-function, yet user-friendly FTP Manager, which will enable you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have created easily. The FTP Manager is a part of our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from setting up and removing accounts, you will be able to change the password for any existing account with only two mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any given account just as easily – you will only need to click on the access path associated with the account and then to select the new directory. Also, you can download an auto-config file for several FTP client programs and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by installing that file. For easier and better management, you can arrange the accounts in alphabetical order on the basis of their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to take advantage of various features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and specify what folder it will have access to with only a couple of clicks via a user-friendly GUI. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve got will be displayed in the exact same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can arrange them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to effortlessly find the FTP account that you want. Changing the access path for an existing FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or editing its password requires one single click of the mouse as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for famous desktop FTP software apps like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
