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 restrictions concerning your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not gain access to any other files or any personal info within your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage different sites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the World Wide Web and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts with ease.
FTP Manager in Hosting
When you you open a hosting account with our company, you’ll be provided with access to the very powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s an integral part of our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, aside from the ability to set up or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a different directory. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available as well, so you will not have to set up anything manually – you can just download the particular file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and install it on your computer system. To make the administration easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the FTP accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server packages come bundled with the feature-rich Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will give you all the controls that you may need so as to manage your FTP accounts without hassle from one location. It takes one mouse click to create or to remove an account and, with 2 more clicks, you can update the folder that this account can connect to. If you create multiple accounts, you can decide how many of them will be shown on one page and whether they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-configuration files will enable you to configure a program like Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without the need to do anything manually.
