The easiest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits concerning your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be given access to any other content or any sensitive information in your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published and then edited 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 are able to create and administer your FTP accounts without efforts.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux website hosting, offers a feature-rich FTP Manager tool that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally only one click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any given time will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can effortlessly locate the one that you want. You will also be able to check what folder a certain account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you’d like to access your hosting space using an FTP software program like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your personal computer – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Additionally, you can view the full list of all the domains or sub-domains that you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to use various options that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a new FTP account and select which folder it will have access to with just a couple of clicks via a user-friendly graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have created will be displayed in the exact same section too and, for your convenience, you can sort them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to swiftly locate the FTP account that you want. Modifying the path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or updating its password requires one mouse click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also use config files for popular desktop apps such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
