The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions regarding your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not be granted access to any other files or any personal data within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to run a number of sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each of our shared hosting, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager that will give you full control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or removing an account requires literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be listed in alphabetical order, so you can swiftly find the one that you need. You’ll also be able to see what directory an account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you’d like to access your web hosting space using an FTP app such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your personal computer – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually on your end. In addition, you can view the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed from the easy-to-use, custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and anything related to them, so you will be able to administer all the accounts quickly and effortlessly. It will take one single mouse click to create a brand new FTP account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the complete list of your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a specific account is also pretty easy – you’ll simply need to click on it and pick the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not need to create a brand-new FTP account if you simply wish to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for widespread FTP clients such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
