The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a given folder is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access limits with regard to your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be given access to any other content or any sensitive data within your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run different Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be uploaded and subsequently modified using an FTP account that has access to its own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without effort.

FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting

If you open a shared website hosting account with our company, you’ll receive access to the extremely powerful FTP Manager, that’s an integral part of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, aside from the ability to set up or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a separate directory. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded as well, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can just download the particular file for Core FTP, CyberDuck or FileZilla and install it on your computer. To make the administration itself easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the FTP accounts that you have created 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 options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a brand-new FTP account and define what folder it will access with just a couple of clicks via an intuitive interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve got will be available in the exact same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to quickly find the account that you need. Changing the path for an existing FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas deleting an account or updating its password requires one click of the mouse as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of config files for popular desktop FTP client apps such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
