The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a particular directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions regarding your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t gain access to any other files or any private information in your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage a number of websites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the web and then updated using an FTP account with access to its very 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 any hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you open a shared web hosting account with our company, you will be granted access to the extremely powerful FTP Manager tool, which is an integral part of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, besides the ability to create or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to check the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a different directory. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded as well, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can just download the specific file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and run it on your computer. To make the management itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered from the simple-to-use, custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all the things related to them, so you’ll be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It’ll take a single click of the mouse to set up a new account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of all your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for an account is also rather easy – you simply have to click on it and choose the new folder in the pop-up that will show up, so you won’t need to set up a brand new account if you simply want to specify what files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for famous FTP software applications such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
