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 put website content access limits regarding your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t have access to any other files or any sensitive details within your account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites built with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be launched online and then edited using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
All our website hosting plans include a feature-packed, yet simple-to-use FTP Manager tool, which will allow you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have created with no effort. The FTP Manager is an integral part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel and aside from setting up and removing accounts, you’ll be able to change the password for any existing account with just two clicks of the mouse. You can modify the level of access for any specific FTP account just as easily – you will just have to click on the access path for the account in question and then to pick the new folder. Furthermore, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software applications and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by installing the file in question. For simpler and more efficient control, you can sort the FTP accounts alphabetically on the basis of their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server packages come bundled with the function-rich Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager tool. It will give you all the features that you might require so as to administer your FTP accounts without any hassle from one location. It takes one single click to set up or to remove an FTP account and, with two more mouse clicks, you can update the folder that this account can connect to. If you set up an immense number of accounts, you can define how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in ascending or descending order on the basis of their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will permit you to set up an FTP client like FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your accounts without the need to do anything manually on your end.
