The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a given directory is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions concerning your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other content or any private information in your account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites built with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be launched online and later updated using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Manager in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux hosting packages, offers a feature-loaded FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Creating or deleting an account requires literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a given moment will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can quickly locate the one that you want. You will also be able to see what directory a particular account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. In case you wish to connect to your hosting space using an FTP software app like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. Moreover, you can view the complete list of all the domains or subdomains that you are able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of various features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and select which directory it will have access to with just a few clicks via a simple-to-use GUI. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created will be available in the same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to quickly locate the FTP account that you need. Changing the path for an existing FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, whereas removing an account or changing its password requires one single click of the mouse too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use config files for widely used desktop FTP software apps like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
