The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a particular directory is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access limits regarding your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not receive access to any other content or any sensitive details within your hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published online and subsequently edited using an FTP account that has access to its own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without efforts.
FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting plans include a feature-packed, yet user-friendly FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you have without hassle. The software tool is an integral part of our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel and aside from creating and removing accounts, you can modify the password for any active account with just 2 mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any specific FTP account just as easily – you just have to click on the access path associated with the account and then to select the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software applications and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer by simply running that file. For easier and more effective 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
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to make use of various options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a brand-new FTP account and select what directory it will have access to with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through an intuitive graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up will be displayed in the same section as well and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to easily locate the FTP account that you want. Modifying the access path for an existing FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or updating its password requires a single mouse click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for widely used desktop FTP client programs like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
