The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions with regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t be provided with access to any other files or any personal info within your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run a number of sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the web and later edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting packages come with a feature-packed, yet simple-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will permit you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve got without efforts. The FTP Manager is an integral part of our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel and apart from setting up and removing accounts, you’ll be able to modify the password for any existing account with just 2 clicks of the mouse. You can modify the level of access for any given account just as easily – you will just have to click on the access path associated with the account and then to choose the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-config file for a number of FTP programs and configure any of the FTP accounts on your computer simply by installing the file in question. For easier and more efficient management, you can arrange the FTP accounts in alphabetical order on the basis of their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to take advantage of a number of options that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a new FTP account and specify which directory it will access with just a few clicks through a simple-to-work-with interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created will be available in the very same section as well and, for your convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to quickly locate the FTP account that you want. Changing the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or editing its password requires one single click as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for famous desktop FTP software apps such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
