The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to set up an FTP account and to put content access limits in regards to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other content or any personal information within your hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published on the World Wide Web and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its 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 effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
If you open a shared hosting account with us, you will have access to the quite powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s an essential part of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, apart from the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to check the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a different folder. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded as well, so you won’t have to configure anything manually – you can simply download the particular file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and install it on your computer system. To make the administration itself easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to use various options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and define which directory it will access with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through a user-friendly graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created will be displayed in the very same section as well and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to swiftly locate the FTP account that you need. Changing the path for an active FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, whereas deleting an account or updating its password requires a single click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for commonly used desktop software applications like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
