The easiest way to give 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 space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not have access to any other files or any personal data within your account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our shared web hosting service, offers a functionality-loaded FTP Manager tool that will give you total control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Creating or deleting an account requires literally just one single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you’ve got at any given time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can quickly find 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 would like to access your hosting space using an FTP program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – that account will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can view the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to take advantage of a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create a brand-new FTP account and select what folder it will access with only a few mouse clicks via a simple-to-navigate interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve got will be displayed in the same section too and, for your convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to quickly find the account that you need. Modifying the access path for an existing account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or changing its password requires one click of the mouse too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use config files for popular desktop programs such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
