The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access limits in regards to your web 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 private data in your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to manage different websites built with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published online and then modified 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 manage your FTP accounts easily.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you you open a cloud hosting account with us, you will get access to the exceptionally powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s an essential part of our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, besides the possibility to set up or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account will access another directory. Auto-configuration files are available for download too, so you will not have to set up anything manually – you can just download the specific file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and run it on your PC. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server packages come bundled with the functionality-packed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager tool. It will provide you with all the features that you might require in order to administer your FTP accounts without hassles from one single location. It takes a click to create or to delete an FTP account and, with two more mouse clicks, you can change the directory that this account can connect to. If you create numerous accounts, you can decide how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-configuration files will allow you to set up an FTP client program like Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without having to do anything manually on your end.
