The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits in regard to 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 data in your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published online and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its very own site 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 hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each of our shared packages, offers a multi-feature FTP Manager tool that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally only one single click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a given moment will be listed alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You will also be able to see what folder an account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you wish to connect to your web space using an FTP application like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – that account will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you are able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server packages come bundled with the feature-loaded Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager tool. It will offer you all the options that you may need to administer your FTP accounts without any effort from a single place. It takes a single mouse click to set up or to remove an FTP account and, with two more clicks of the mouse, you can edit the folder that this account can access. In case you create plenty of FTP accounts, you can decide how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in descending or ascending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-config files will permit you to set up an FTP client app such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your FTP accounts without the need to do anything manually on your end.
