The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a specific folder is to set up an FTP account and to specify website content access limits in regards to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t gain access to any other files or any sensitive data in your hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of sites built with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published on the Internet and then edited using an FTP account with access to its very own website 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 hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you open a shared web hosting account with us, you’ll gain access to the extremely powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s included in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool offers several different options, apart from the possibility to create or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account in question will access another directory. Downloadable auto-config files are available as well, so you will not need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the given file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and run it on your personal computer. To make the management simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the FTP accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to use a number of features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and select what directory it will access with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-work-with interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve got will be available in the same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to swiftly locate the FTP account that you need. Changing the access path for an active account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or editing its password requires one click of the mouse as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of configuration files for famous desktop FTP software programs like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
