The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions in regards to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t obtain access to any other files or any private data in your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run different Internet sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be brought online and later updated using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
When you you open a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to access the quite powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s an essential part of our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, aside from the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account will access a different directory. Auto-configuration files are available for download as well, so you won’t have to set up anything manually – you can just download the given file for Core FTP, CyberDuck or FileZilla and run it on your computer. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed from the simple-to-navigate, in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you’ll be able to manage all the accounts quickly and effortlessly. It’ll take a single click to create a brand-new account, to remove an active one or simply to change its password. You can also see the full list of your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for a given account is also rather easy – you’ll only need to click on it and choose the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t need to set up a brand new FTP account if you simply need to specify what files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-configuration files for widely used FTP applications like Core FTP and FileZilla.
