The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a specific folder is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions regarding your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t be provided with access to any other files or any sensitive data within your hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to run different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the web and then modified using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
When you you open a website hosting account with our company, you will acquire access to the quite powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s a part of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, apart from the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a different directory. Auto-config files are available for download too, so you won’t have to configure anything manually – you can just download the specific file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and install it on your PC. To make the management itself simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the FTP accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to use a number of features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and select which folder it will access with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-navigate interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have created will be displayed in the exact same section as well and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to easily find the FTP account that you need. Modifying the path for an existing FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or updating its password requires one single click of the mouse as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for commonly used desktop software applications like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
