The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a particular directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions concerning your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t obtain access to any other content or any sensitive info within your account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be launched online and subsequently edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting packages include a feature-rich, albeit simple-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will allow you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have created without hassle. The software tool is an essential part of our ultramodern Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from creating and removing accounts, you’ll be able to edit the password for any active account with just two mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any given account just as easily – you’ll just need to click on the access path associated with the account in question and then to choose the new directory. In addition, you can download an auto-configuration file for different FTP software apps and configure any of the FTP accounts on your computer simply by installing the file in question. For easier and more efficient control, you can sort the FTP accounts alphabetically based on their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through the user-friendly, custom Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything associated with them, so you can administer all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It will take a single click to create a new FTP account, to remove an active one or simply to change its password. You can also see the full list of all your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, 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 pretty easy – you will simply have to click on it and pick the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t need to set up a new account in case you simply want to define what files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for famous FTP client programs such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
