The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to set content access limits in regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not have access to any other files or any personal information within your account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to maintain different websites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be uploaded and subsequently modified using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts without effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our shared web hosting, offers a function-rich FTP Manager that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account requires literally just one mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can easily locate the one that you need. You will also be able to see what directory a particular account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you wish to connect to your hosting space using an FTP program such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually on your end. What’s more, you can see the full list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to make use of different options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and choose which folder it will have access to with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through a user-friendly GUI. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have created will be displayed in the exact 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’ll be able to swiftly locate the FTP account that you want. Modifying the path for an existing FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or changing its password requires one mouse click as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also download config files for famous desktop software programs such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
