The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a particular folder is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions concerning your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not gain access to any other files or any personal info in your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to run different sites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be uploaded and later edited using an FTP account with access to its very own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
All our website hosting packages come with a multifunctional, yet intuitive FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you have with ease. The tool is an essential part of our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from creating and deleting FTP accounts, you will be able to update the password associated with any existing account with just two clicks. You can change the level of access for any specific FTP account just as easily – you’ll only have to click on the access path for the account in question and then to select the new directory. In addition, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP client programs and set up any of the FTP accounts on your computer simply by running that file. For easier and more efficient control, you can arrange the FTP accounts alphabetically on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server plans come bundled with the functionality-packed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the controls that you may require so as to manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way from one single location. It takes a single click to create or to delete an account and, with 2 more clicks of the mouse, you can edit the directory that can be accessed by this account. If you create lots of FTP accounts, you can choose how many of them will be shown on one page and whether they should be listed in descending or ascending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-config files will permit you to set up an FTP client app such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without having to do anything manually on your end.
