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 put website content access limits with regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not receive access to any other files or any sensitive information in your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to maintain different websites built with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published online and later updated using an FTP account that has 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 without efforts.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
When you you open a website hosting account with us, you’ll receive access to the super-powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s part of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, aside from the ability to create or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a separate directory. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded too, so you won’t need to set up anything manually – you can simply download the particular file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and run it on your PC. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed via the intuitive, tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and anything related to them, so you can administer all the accounts swiftly and effortlessly. It’ll take a single click of the mouse to set up a new FTP account, to delete an active one or simply to change its password. You can also view the complete list of all your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a certain account is also amazingly easy – you will simply need to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up that will show up, so you won’t have to set up a brand-new account if you simply wish to define what web files an existing account can access. You can also use auto-config files for famous FTP software applications like FileZilla and Core FTP.
