The easiest 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 specify content access limits in regards to your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be provided with access to any other files or any private information within your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
When you you open a web hosting account with us, you will acquire access to the amazingly powerful FTP Manager, that’s an integral part of our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool offers several different options, aside from the possibility to set up or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access another directory. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available too, so you won’t need to configure anything manually – you can just download the given file for Core FTP, CyberDuck or FileZilla and install it on your PC. To make the administration simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server plans come bundled with the multifunction Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which includes our FTP Manager software tool. It will offer you all the options that you might require to administer your FTP accounts without effort from one single location. It takes one mouse click to set up or to delete an account and, with two more mouse clicks, you can update the directory that this account can access. In case you create an extensive number of FTP accounts, you can decide how many of them will be shown on one page and if they should be listed in descending or ascending order on the basis of their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will enable you to configure an FTP client like FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your FTP accounts without having to do anything manually on your end.
