The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a particular directory is to set up an FTP account and to specify content access limits concerning your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not be provided with access to any other content or any sensitive data within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain different sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the web and then edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
All our web hosting packages come with a multifunction, albeit user-friendly FTP Manager, which will permit you to manage all the FTP accounts that you’ve created without hassles. The tool is included in our ultramodern Hepsia hosting Control Panel and apart from creating and removing FTP accounts, you will be able to modify the password associated with any active account with just 2 clicks of the mouse. You can modify the access level for any specific account just as easily – you just need to click on the access path associated with the account and then to pick the new directory. In addition, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP applications and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer by simply installing the given file. For easier and better control, you can arrange the FTP accounts in alphabetical order based on their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to take advantage of different options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and define what folder it will access with just a few clicks through a simple-to-navigate interface. A list of all the accounts that you have created will be displayed in the very 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 swiftly find the FTP account that you want. Modifying the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or editing its password requires a single mouse click as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also make use of config files for commonly used desktop FTP software applications like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
