The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions regarding your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t receive access to any other content or any private details in your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published on the World Wide Web and subsequently modified using an FTP account that has 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 any effort.
FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting packages come with a feature-packed, albeit simple-to-use FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to manage all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up without any effort. The software instrument is part of our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from setting up and deleting FTP accounts, you’ll be able to change the password associated with any active account with just two clicks. You can change the level of access for any specific FTP account just as easily – you’ll just have to click on the access path associated with the account and then to pick the new folder. What’s more, you can download an auto-configuration file for different FTP apps and set up any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by running the file in question. For easier and better control, you can sort the accounts alphabetically on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed via the time and effort saving, tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It’ll take a single click to create a brand new FTP account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the full list of your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for an account is also amazingly easy – you just need to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up window that will appear, so you will not have to set up a whole new account in case you simply want to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also use auto-configuration files for famous FTP software apps like Core FTP and FileZilla.
