The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a certain directory is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access limits in regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not receive access to any other files or any personal details within your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage different websites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published on the web and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Manager in Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our hosting services, offers a feature-loaded FTP Manager that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally only a single click and all the accounts that you have at any given time will be listed in alphabetical order, so you can quickly locate the one that you need. You’ll also be able to check what directory a given account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you would like to access your hosting space using an FTP software app such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually on your end. What’s more, you can see the full list of all the domains or subdomains that you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to make use of a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and choose what folder it will access with only a few clicks of the mouse through a user-friendly graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you’ve got will be available in the very same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to effortlessly locate the FTP account that you want. Changing the access path for an existing FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or editing its password requires one click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of configuration files for widely used desktop clients like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
