Learn what an FTP Manager is actually and why it’s beneficial to have one when building a site.
You can use separate FTP accounts to administer your web content in case you have several sites within the exact same hosting account. You can provide different persons with access only to particular folders, for instance – web designers or IT professionals from the company, and be certain that they will not be able to connect to any other files or anything else in the web hosting account, since the FTP accounts have limited access. Furthermore, you can create and administer several different sites at the same time with a website building app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver (as these applications use FTP to make a connection to the server) and publish the website files both when you create them and when you modify them. A key part of doing these tasks is the possibility to set up and manage your FTP accounts swiftly and seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each of our shared web hosting
, offers a feature-rich FTP Manager that will give you full control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular moment will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can effortlessly locate the one that you want. You will also be able to see what folder a particular account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you wish to access your web space using an FTP app such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. What’s more, you can see the full list of all the domains or sub-domains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you open a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you’ll be able to use different options that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and select what directory it will have access to with only a few mouse clicks through a user-friendly interface. A list of all the accounts that you have will be available in the 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 swiftly locate the account that you need. Modifying the path for an active FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one single click of the mouse too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for famous desktop software programs like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
