The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions concerning your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be given access to any other files or any personal information within your web hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to run a number of websites created with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
All our shared website hosting plans come with a multifunctional, yet easy-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will allow you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve got seamlessly. The FTP Manager is a part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel and apart from creating and deleting FTP accounts, you will be able to modify the password for any active account with only two clicks of the mouse. You can change the access level for any given account just as easily – you’ll only have to click on the access path associated with the account in question and then to select the new folder. In addition, you can download an auto-config file for several FTP clients and configure any of the FTP accounts on your computer by simply running the given file. For easier and better control, you can arrange the accounts in alphabetical order based on their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to make use of different features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create a brand-new FTP account and specify which directory it will have access to with just a few clicks of the mouse via a user-friendly interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created will be displayed in the same section as well and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to easily find the FTP account that you want. Modifying the access path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or editing its password requires one single click of the mouse too. With the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for commonly used desktop FTP software programs such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
