The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a particular folder is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions with regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not receive access to any other content or any personal data within your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to run a number of websites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published online and then edited using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you open a shared web hosting account with us, you’ll be granted access to the very powerful FTP Manager tool, which is an essential part of our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, apart from the possibility to set up or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access a separate directory. Auto-config files can be downloaded as well, so you won’t have to set up anything manually – you can just download the given file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and run it on your computer. To make the management itself easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case you’ve never had a web hosting account before, you will not have any difficulty managing any part of your Internet presence if you obtain a semi-dedicated server from our company and the FTP part makes no exception. With the FTP Manager, which is an essential part of our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll have full control over your FTP accounts via an exceptionally simple-to-navigate interface. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you will be able to do more or less everything – to set up or to delete an FTP account, to update its password, to change the directory that it can connect to or to make use of auto-config files for FTP programs like Core FTP and FileZilla. In case you’ve got an enormous number of accounts, you will be able to manage them with ease, as you can sort them alphabetically in descending or ascending order either by folder access path or by username.
