The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions concerning your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be able to access any other content or any personal information in your web hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to manage a number of sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published and later edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
All our cloud web hosting plans include a multifunction, yet simple-to-use FTP Manager tool, which will allow you to manage all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up without any effort. The software instrument is included in our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from setting up and deleting accounts, you will be able to update the password for any active account with only 2 clicks of the mouse. You can change the level of access for any given FTP account just as easily – you’ll only have to click on the access path associated with the account in question and then to pick the new folder. Also, you can download an auto-config file for different FTP programs and set up any of the FTP accounts on your computer simply by running that file. For simpler and better control, you can arrange the accounts in alphabetical order on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server plans come with the feature-loaded Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which includes our FTP Manager software tool. It will give you all the options that you might need so as to administer your FTP accounts easily from a single place. It takes one single click to create or to delete an FTP account and, with two more clicks of the mouse, you can edit the directory that can be accessed with this account. In case you set up a large number of FTP accounts, you can define 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 access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will allow you to configure an FTP software app such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without having to do anything manually on your end.
