The easiest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to specify content access limits regarding your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t gain access to any other files or any private data within your hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the World Wide Web and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its own site 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 without efforts.
FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting packages include a feature-loaded, albeit easy-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will permit you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have set up without any hassle. The software tool is an integral part of our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from setting up and removing accounts, you will be able to update the password associated with any active account with just two clicks of the mouse. You can change the access level for any given FTP account just as easily – you’ll only need to click on the access path for the account and then to choose the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-configuration file for various FTP apps and configure any of the FTP accounts on your PC simply by installing the given file. For simpler and more effective control, you can arrange the accounts in alphabetical order on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to make use of different options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a new FTP account and choose what directory it will access with only a couple of clicks through an easy-to-use interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up will be available in the exact same section as well and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to effortlessly find the account that you need. Changing the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas deleting an account or changing its password requires one mouse click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for widely used desktop apps like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
