The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to put content access limits in regard to your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be provided with access to any other files or any sensitive data within your account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain different websites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the World Wide Web and later modified using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts effortlessly.

FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you open a cloud hosting account with us, you will be given access to the rather powerful FTP Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, aside from the ability to set up or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access a separate folder. Auto-config files are available for download as well, so you won’t have to set up anything manually – you can just download the specific file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and run it on your computer. To make the administration itself easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the FTP accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server packages come bundled with the function-rich Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager tool. It will give you all the options that you might need to manage your FTP accounts in a seamless fashion from one single location. It takes one click to set up or to remove an FTP account and, with two more mouse clicks, you can change the directory that this account can connect to. In case you set up lots of accounts, you can decide how many of them will be shown on one page and if they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-config files will permit you to set up an app like Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your FTP accounts without having to do anything manually.
