The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions in regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t have access to any other files or any personal data in your hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published on the web and subsequently edited using an FTP account with access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Manager in Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our hosting services, offers a multi-function FTP Manager tool that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any given time will be listed alphabetically, so you can easily find the one that you want. You will also be able to see what folder a given account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you wish to access your web space using an FTP client such as FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – that account will be set up without you needing to do anything manually on your end. In addition, you can see the full list of all the domains or sub-domains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through the easy-to-navigate, tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and anything associated with them, so you’ll be able to administer all the accounts quickly and easily. It’ll take a single click of the mouse to create a brand new FTP account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the full list of all your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section 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 particular account is also easy – you will only have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up window that will show up, so you won’t have to create a brand new FTP account if you simply need to specify what web files an existing account can access. You can also use auto-config files for widely used FTP client apps such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
