The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a particular directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions in regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t receive access to any other content or any personal details in your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to run a number of sites built with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be uploaded and then modified using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux shared website hosting services
, offers a function-loaded FTP Manager that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Creating or deleting an account requires literally only one single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a given time will be listed alphabetically, so you can effortlessly find the one that you need. You will also be able to check what directory a specific account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you wish to access your web space using an FTP program such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your PC – that account will be configured without you needing to do anything manually on your end. Additionally, you can view the full list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you’ll be able to take advantage of various options that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a brand-new FTP account and choose which directory it will have access to with just a couple of clicks via an easy-to-use interface. A list of all the accounts that you have set up will be available in the exact same section too and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to swiftly locate the account that you need. Changing the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one single click of the mouse too. With the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for commonly used desktop software programs like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
