The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to specify content access limits in regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be able to access any other files or any private information in your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published online and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without effort.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every website hosting package, will give you access to various controls to administer your FTP accounts conveniently from the FTP Manager section. In case you would like to create a brand-new account, to edit the password for an existing one or remove it entirely, it won’t take more than a click. Unlike other Control Panels where you need to set up a new account if you wish to be provided with access to a different directory, our FTP Manager will allow you to modify the access path for an active account quite easily and you will be able to view the paths for all the FTP accounts as soon as you access Hepsia’s FTP Manager section. For the sake of convenience, you can set up an FTP account on your personal computer by downloading and installing an auto-config file for different FTP software apps – CyberDuck, FileZilla, Core FTP. You can also arrange all the accounts in descending or ascending order based on their usernames or access paths and locate the one that you need faster and easier.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed through the simple-to-use, in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and anything associated with them, so you can manage all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It will take one mouse click to set up a brand-new account, to delete an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also view the complete list of all your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a certain account is also quite easy – you just have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up window that will appear, so you will not need to create a whole new account in case you simply need to specify what web files an existing one can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for commonly used FTP software programs like FileZilla and Core FTP.
