The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given directory is to set up an FTP account and to set content access limits in regards to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not receive access to any other content or any private details within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to manage different websites built with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the Internet and later modified using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our shared hosting
, offers a multi-feature FTP Manager that will give you full control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Creating or removing an account requires literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you have at a given moment will be shown in alphabetical order, so you can effortlessly find the one that you want. You will also be able to see what folder a particular account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. In case you’d like to access your web hosting space using an FTP application such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your PC – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually yourself. Additionally, you can see the full list of all the domains or subdomains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you will be able to use a number of features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and select what folder it will have access to with only a few clicks through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created will be available in the same section as well and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to effortlessly find the FTP account that you want. Changing the access path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one single mouse click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also make use of configuration files for popular desktop FTP software programs such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
