The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions concerning your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be granted access to any other content or any sensitive data within your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts easily.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting plans include a feature-rich, yet simple-to-use FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have without hassles. The tool is a part of our ultramodern Hepsia hosting Control Panel and apart from creating and deleting accounts, you can change the password associated with any active account with just two clicks. You can change the level of access for any specific account just as easily – you’ll only need to click on the access path for the account and then to pick the new folder. Also, you can download an auto-configuration file for various FTP clients and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer by simply running that file. For simpler and more efficient control, you can arrange the FTP accounts in alphabetical order based on their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered through the time and effort saving, tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all the things associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts quickly and easily. It’ll take a click to create a brand new FTP account, to delete an active one or simply to change its password. You can also see the full list of your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a particular account is also pretty easy – you will simply have to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t need to set up a brand new account if you simply want to define what files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for famous FTP client apps like Core FTP and FileZilla.
