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 specify website content access limits regarding your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t get access to any other files or any personal information in your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to manage different websites created with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be brought online and then edited using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without efforts.
FTP Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our cloud web hosting, offers a function-rich FTP Manager tool that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally just one single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at a given moment will be listed in alphabetical order, so you can swiftly find the one that you need. You will also be able to check what folder a particular account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you wish to access your hosting space using an FTP application like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your PC – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. Moreover, you can see the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains that you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed through the user-friendly, in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all the things associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts quickly and easily. It will take one single mouse click to create a brand-new account, to remove an active one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for a given account is also very easy – you only have to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up window that will appear, so you won’t have to set up a brand-new FTP account in case you simply wish to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-configuration files for popular FTP client apps like FileZilla and Core FTP.
