The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to specify content access limits in regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t obtain access to any other files or any sensitive info within your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published online and later updated using an FTP account with access to its own domain name 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 Hosting
If you open a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be granted access to the pretty powerful FTP Manager, which is included in our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, besides the ability to set up or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a separate folder. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available as well, so you won’t have to set up anything manually – you can simply download the given file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your personal computer. To make the administration easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed through the easy-to-navigate, tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and all the things related to them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It’ll take one single click to create a new FTP account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the full list of your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a specific account is also amazingly easy – you only have to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up window that will show up, so you will not have to set up a new FTP account if you simply wish to define what website files an existing account can access. You can also take advantage of auto-config files for popular FTP software applications such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
