The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to set website content access limits regarding your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not get access to any other files or any personal info in your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain different 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 own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting plans include a function-loaded, albeit intuitive FTP Manager, which will permit you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve created easily. The software tool is included in our ultramodern Hepsia hosting Control Panel and besides creating and removing FTP accounts, you’ll be able to update the password associated with any existing account with only 2 mouse clicks. You can modify the level of access for any specific account just as easily – you will just have to click on the access path associated with the account in question and then to pick the new folder. Furthermore, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP clients and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer by simply installing the given file. For simpler and more effective management, you can arrange the FTP accounts alphabetically on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed via the easy-to-use, custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and all the things related to them, so you’ll be able to administer all the accounts quickly and easily. It’ll take a click to set up a brand new FTP account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a given account is also amazingly easy – you just have to click on it and pick the new folder in the pop-up window that will show up, so you won’t need to create a brand-new account in case you simply need to define what files an existing one can access. You can also use auto-configuration files for famous FTP client apps like Core FTP and FileZilla.
