The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a certain directory is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions regarding your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not obtain access to any other content or any sensitive information within your account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to manage a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the Internet and subsequently edited using an FTP account that has 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 administer your FTP accounts without efforts.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting plans come with a multifunction, yet simple-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will allow you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve created without hassles. The tool is included in our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel and aside from creating and deleting accounts, you will be able to modify the password for any existing account with just two clicks of the mouse. You can modify the level of access for any given FTP account just as easily – you will only need to click on the access path for the account and then to select the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP applications and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer by simply running the file in question. For simpler and more efficient management, you can sort the FTP accounts alphabetically based on their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server plans come with the function-loaded Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the options that you might need so as to administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way from a single place. It takes one single click of the mouse to set up or to delete an account and, with two more mouse clicks, you can edit the folder that can be accessed with this account. If you set up numerous FTP accounts, you can decide how many of them will be shown on one page and whether they should be listed in descending or ascending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-config files will enable you to set up an FTP program such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without having to do anything manually.
