The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access limits with regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not acquire access to any other files or any private information in your account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run a number of websites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the Internet and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
All our shared website hosting plans come with a feature-packed, albeit easy-to-use FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you have without hassles. The tool is part of our ultramodern Hepsia Control Panel and apart from setting up and removing FTP accounts, you’ll be able to edit the password for any active account with only two mouse clicks. You can change the level of access for any given account just as easily – you’ll just need to click on the access path for the account and then to choose the new directory. In addition, you can download an auto-config file for various FTP client programs and configure any of the FTP accounts on your PC simply by installing that file. For simpler and more effective control, you can arrange the accounts alphabetically based on their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed via the intuitive, custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you can manage all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It’ll take one click of the mouse to set up a brand-new FTP account, to remove an active one or simply to change its password. You can also see the complete list of all your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for a particular account is also amazingly easy – you’ll only have to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up window that will show up, so you will not have to create a new FTP account if you simply want to specify what web files an existing account can access. You can also use auto-config files for widely used FTP programs like FileZilla and Core FTP.
