The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a given folder is to set up an FTP account and to specify website content access limits in regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not obtain access to any other content or any personal data in your web hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run different websites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published online and subsequently edited using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
All our web hosting packages come with a functionality-rich, yet intuitive FTP Manager, which will permit you to administer all the FTP accounts that you have without efforts. The software tool is a part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel and apart from setting up and removing FTP accounts, you’ll be able to modify the password for any existing account with only 2 mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any specific account just as easily – you just have to click on the access path for the account and then to choose the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-config file for various FTP clients and set up any of the FTP accounts on your PC simply by installing that file. For easier and better control, you can arrange the FTP accounts in alphabetical order on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server packages come with the multifunctional Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will give you all the options that you might require so as to administer your FTP accounts without effort from a single place. It takes one single click to set up or to delete an FTP account and, with two more mouse clicks, you can update the directory that can be accessed by this account. If you set up plenty of FTP accounts, you can decide how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in descending or ascending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-config files will enable you to configure a program such as FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your accounts without you having to do anything manually.
