The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a particular folder is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access limits with regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other files or any personal info in your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published online and subsequently edited using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
When you you open a website hosting account with our company, you’ll be provided with access to the exceptionally powerful FTP Manager tool, that is an integral part of our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, aside from the ability to create or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to view the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a different folder. Auto-configuration files are available for download too, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can just download the respective file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and install it on your computer system. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
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 next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and select which folder it will access with only a few clicks via an intuitive GUI. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve got will be displayed in the very same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can arrange them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to effortlessly find the FTP account that you want. Changing the path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or changing its password requires one mouse click as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also use config files for popular desktop FTP client apps such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
