The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to set website content access limits with regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be given access to any other content or any personal data within your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the World Wide Web and then modified using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux shared web hosting services
, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally just one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any given moment will be shown alphabetically, so you can easily find the one that you want. You will also be able to check what directory a certain account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP client application like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually yourself. In addition, you can see a list of all the domains or subdomains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server
packages come with the feature-loaded Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the options that you might require in order to administer your FTP accounts without effort from one single location. It takes a single click to create or to delete an account and, with 2 more mouse clicks, you can update the directory that this account can connect to. If you set up a lot of FTP accounts, you can specify how many of them will be displayed on one page and whether they should be listed in descending or ascending order on the basis of their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-configuration files will enable you to set up a software program such as FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your FTP accounts without the need to do anything manually.
