The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits in regards to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t receive access to any other content or any sensitive data within your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to run a number of websites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published online and then modified using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you open a shared web hosting account with our company, you will obtain access to the extremely powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s included in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool includes a number of different options, besides the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account will access another directory. Auto-config files are available for download too, so you won’t have to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and run it on your PC. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server plans come bundled with the function-packed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the controls that you may require in order to administer your FTP accounts easily from one location. It takes a click to set up or to delete an account and, with 2 more clicks, you can change the directory that can be accessed by this account. In case you set up plenty of FTP accounts, you can select how many of them will be shown on one page and if they should be listed in descending or ascending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-configuration files will enable you to set up an application like FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your accounts without you having to do anything manually.
