The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions in regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t gain access to any other files or any personal details within your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to manage different websites built with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be uploaded and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Manager in Hosting
All our hosting plans come with a multifunction, yet easy-to-use FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve got without effort. The tool is an essential part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel and aside from creating and removing FTP accounts, you can update the password associated with any existing account with only two mouse clicks. You can modify the level of access for any specific account just as easily – you only have to click on the access path for the account and then to pick the new directory. Also, you can download an auto-config file for a number of FTP client apps and set up any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by installing the file in question. For easier and better management, you can arrange the accounts alphabetically on the basis of their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server plans come with the functionality-rich Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will give you all the controls that you may require in order to administer your FTP accounts seamlessly from one location. It takes one single mouse click to create or to delete an account and, with 2 more clicks, you can change the folder that can be accessed by this account. If you create multiple FTP accounts, you can choose how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in descending or ascending order on the basis of their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-config files will allow you to configure a software program such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without having to do anything manually.
