The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a particular folder is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions in regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not be granted access to any other content or any private data within your account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to manage a number of websites created with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the Internet and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its very own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
All our cloud hosting plans come with a functionality-rich, albeit easy-to-work-with FTP Manager, which will allow you to manage all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up with no effort. The tool is an essential part of our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel and aside from creating and deleting FTP accounts, you can edit the password associated with any active account with just two clicks. You can modify the level of access for any specific FTP account just as easily – you will only have to click on the access path associated with the account and then to choose the new directory. In addition, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP clients and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer by simply running the given file. For simpler and more effective management, you can arrange the FTP accounts alphabetically on the basis of their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server plans come bundled with the function-loaded Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which includes our FTP Manager tool. It will give you all the options that you may require in order to manage your FTP accounts with ease from one single location. It takes a single click of the mouse to create or to delete an account and, with 2 more clicks, you can edit the directory that can be accessed with this account. If you create an enormous number of FTP accounts, you can select how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-config files will enable you to set up an FTP client application like FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your FTP accounts without the need to do anything manually.
