The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a particular folder is to create an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions in regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t obtain access to any other files or any sensitive info in your hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our web hosting, offers a function-loaded FTP Manager tool that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally only one single mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can effortlessly find the one that you want. You will also be able to see what folder a specific account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you wish to access your web hosting space using an FTP software app such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually yourself. What’s more, you can see the complete list of all the domains or subdomains that you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed via the easy-to-navigate, custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts swiftly and easily. It will take a single mouse click to set up a new account, to delete an active one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of all your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for an account is also exceptionally easy – you will just have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up window that will appear, so you won’t need to create a brand new account in case you simply wish to define what files an existing one can access. You can also use auto-config files for popular FTP apps such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
