The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to put content access restrictions in regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not get access to any other content or any personal data within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites built with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be uploaded and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux website hosting
, offers a feature-rich FTP Manager that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account requires literally just a single click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a given time will be shown alphabetically, so you can quickly locate the one that you want. You will also be able to see what directory a specific account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you wish to access your web space using an FTP software app like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your personal computer – that account will be set up without you needing to do anything manually on your end. What’s more, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts are managed from the time and effort saving, in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and all of the things related to them, so you’ll be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and effortlessly. It’ll take one click of the mouse to create a brand-new account, to remove an active one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the full list of your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for the sake of convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for a specific account is also exceptionally easy – you will simply have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t have to create a new account in case you simply wish to define what website files an existing account can access. You can also take advantage of auto-config files for widely used FTP software programs like Core FTP and FileZilla.
