The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to specify content access restrictions concerning your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be granted access to any other files or any personal info in your account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to run different Internet sites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published on the web and later modified using an FTP account that has access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Hosting
All our hosting packages come with a function-loaded, albeit simple-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will permit you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have set up without any hassles. The software tool is part of our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from setting up and deleting FTP accounts, you can change the password for any active account with just two mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any given FTP account just as easily – you’ll only have to click on the access path for the account and then to select the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-configuration file for different FTP applications and configure any of the FTP accounts on your computer by simply running that file. For simpler and better management, you can arrange the FTP accounts in alphabetical order on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered through the intuitive, in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you can manage all the accounts swiftly and effortlessly. It’ll take one click of the mouse to set up a brand-new account, to delete an active one or simply to change its password. You can also see the complete list of your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for an account is also easy – you simply need to click on it and choose the new folder in the pop-up window that will appear, so you won’t have to create a brand new FTP account in case you simply need to define what files an existing account can access. You can also use auto-configuration files for famous FTP software programs such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
