The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions in regards to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not be given access to any other content or any sensitive data in your hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain different sites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be brought online and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Hosting
When you you open a hosting account with us, you will have access to the incredibly powerful FTP Manager tool, that is part of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, aside from the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a separate directory. Downloadable auto-config files are available as well, so you will not need to set up anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and run it on your computer system. To make the administration easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server packages come bundled with the function-rich Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will offer you all the options that you might need so as to administer your FTP accounts without any hassle from a single place. It takes one click to set up or to remove an account and, with 2 more mouse clicks, you can update the folder that this account can access. In case you set up an enormous number of FTP accounts, you can decide how many of them will be shown on one page and if they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-configuration files will allow you to set up a software app like Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without the need to do anything manually.
