The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access limits in regards to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not acquire access to any other files or any private information within your hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published on the web and later modified using an FTP account with access to its own domain name 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 easily.
FTP Manager in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our hosting, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager that will give you full control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally only one mouse click and all the accounts that you have at a particular moment will be shown alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what directory a given account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP client like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – that account will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. Furthermore, you can see the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server packages come bundled with the multi-feature Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which includes our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the controls that you may need in order to administer your FTP accounts without any hassle from one single location. It takes one single mouse click to create or to delete an FTP account and, with 2 more clicks, you can change the directory that this account can connect to. If you create 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 descending or ascending order on the basis of their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will permit you to set up an FTP app such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your FTP accounts without the need to do anything manually on your end.
