The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits with regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be provided with access to any other content or any personal details in your hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain different websites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be launched online and then modified using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Manager in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux hosting plans, offers a functionality-rich FTP Manager tool that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally only a single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular time will be shown alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You will also be able to check what directory a given account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you want to connect to your web space using an FTP software program such as FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. Besides, you can see the complete list of all the domains or subdomains that you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through the easy-to-work-with, custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you’ll be able to administer all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It will take a click to set up a brand-new account, to delete an active one or simply to change its password. You can also see the full list of your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a particular account is also very easy – you only need to click on it and choose the new directory in the pop-up that will show up, so you won’t have to create a new account if you simply want to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for widely used FTP client apps such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
