The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions concerning your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not receive access to any other content or any private info in your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published and subsequently edited 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’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each of our shared hosting
, offers a function-rich FTP Manager tool that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Creating or deleting an account requires literally just one click and all the accounts that you have at any given moment will be listed alphabetically, so you can quickly find the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what directory a particular account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you’d like to connect to your web space using an FTP software program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. Moreover, you can view a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
packages come with the multi-feature Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager tool. It will give you all the controls that you may require to administer your FTP accounts in a seamless fashion from a single place. It takes one single click to create or to delete an account and, with two more clicks, you can update the folder that can be accessed with this account. In case you create lots of FTP accounts, you can decide how many of them will be shown on one page and if they should be listed in descending or ascending order on the basis of their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-config files will enable you to set up an FTP program such as FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your accounts without you having to do anything manually on your end.
