The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access restrictions concerning your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not have access to any other files or any private information within your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be launched online and later modified using an FTP account with access to its very own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts effortlessly.
FTP Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our cloud web hosting, offers a function-loaded FTP Manager tool that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally just one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any given time will be shown in alphabetical order, so you can easily locate the one that you need. You will also be able to check what folder a given account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you would like to access your hosting space using an FTP software app such as FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you needing to do anything manually on your end. Moreover, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains that you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to take advantage of different features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and specify which folder it will have access to with just a few mouse clicks through an easy-to-navigate interface. A list of all the accounts that you’ve got will be available in the same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to effortlessly find the FTP account that you need. Changing the access path for an active account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while deleting an account or updating its password requires one click as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for famous desktop FTP software applications such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
