The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to set website content access limits in regard to your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t obtain access to any other content or any sensitive information in your account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage different sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published online and then edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without effort.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux cloud packages, offers a function-rich FTP Manager that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally just a single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular time will be shown in alphabetical order, so you can effortlessly locate the one that you need. You will also be able to see what directory a certain account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP client app like FileZilla or Core FTP, 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 set up without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Besides, you can view the full list of all the domains or subdomains that you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered via the user-friendly, custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all the things associated with them, so you can manage all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It’ll take a single click to create a brand new account, to delete an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also see the full list of all your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a given account is also exceptionally easy – you will simply have to click on it and choose the new folder in the pop-up that will show up, so you will not need to set up a whole new account in case you simply wish to specify what files an existing account can access. You can also take advantage of auto-config files for popular FTP client apps such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
