The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a specific folder is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions concerning your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t obtain access to any other content or any private data within your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be uploaded and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
When you you open a web hosting account with us, you will receive access to the exceptionally powerful FTP Manager tool, that is an integral part of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, aside from the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access another directory. Auto-config files can be downloaded as well, so you will not need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and install it on your computer. To make the management itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to make use of different features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and define what directory it will access with only a few clicks via an easy-to-use interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have created will be available in the very same section as well and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to effortlessly find the FTP account that you want. Changing the access path for an existing FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or updating its password requires a single click of the mouse as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for famous desktop clients such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
