The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a given folder is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions with regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not acquire access to any other files or any private information in your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published on the World Wide Web and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has 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 create and administer your FTP accounts easily.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux website hosting
, offers a functionality-loaded FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally just one mouse click and all the accounts that you have at a given moment will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can swiftly locate the one that you need. You’ll also be able to check what folder an account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you want to access your web hosting space using an FTP client program such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. In addition, you can view a list of all the domains or subdomains that you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will be able to use various features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and specify what directory it will have access to with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through an intuitive GUI. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up will be available in the same section as well and, for the sake of convenience, you can arrange them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to quickly locate the account that you want. Modifying the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also download config files for widely used desktop FTP software apps such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
