The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions with regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not have access to any other content or any private info in your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage different sites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published on the web and later modified using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux website hosting packages
, offers a feature-packed FTP Manager tool that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally only one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any given moment will be displayed alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you need. You will also be able to see what folder a certain account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you would like to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP client program like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Also, you can see the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains that you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts are managed via the simple-to-use, in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you’ll be able to manage all the accounts swiftly and effortlessly. It will take a click to create a brand new FTP account, to remove an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also see the complete list of your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for a specific account is also rather easy – you’ll simply need to click on it and choose the new directory in the pop-up that will show up, so you won’t have to set up a whole new FTP account in case you simply want to specify what files an existing account can access. You can also use auto-configuration files for popular FTP software apps like FileZilla and Core FTP.
