The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions with regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not obtain access to any other content or any private details within your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published on the World Wide Web and then edited using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every shared hosting plan, will give you access to various features to manage your FTP accounts conveniently from the FTP Manager section. When you would like to set up a brand-new FTP account, to change the password for an existing one or delete it entirely, it won’t take more than a click. In contrast to other Control Panels where you have to set up a brand new FTP account if you need to receive access to a different folder, our FTP Manager will allow you to modify the access path associated with an active account rather easily and you’ll be able to see the access paths for all the FTP accounts as soon as you visit the FTP Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you can create an FTP account on your personal computer by downloading and installing an auto-config file for a number of software programs – CyberDuck, FileZilla, Core FTP. You can also sort all the accounts in ascending or descending order on the basis of their access paths or usernames and locate the one that you need easier and faster.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to take advantage of different features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and select which directory it will access with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via an intuitive interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve got will be displayed in the exact same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to easily find the account that you want. Modifying the path for an existing FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one single click as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for commonly used desktop FTP client applications like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
