The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions regarding your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t be able to access any other content or any private information in your web hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the Internet and then edited using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without effort.

FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux cloud website hosting, offers a multifunction FTP Manager tool that will give you total control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally just one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you’ve got at any particular moment will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to check what directory a certain account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you wish to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP program such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. Besides, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains that you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through the simple-to-work-with, in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and anything associated with them, so you will be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It’ll take one single click of the mouse to set up a brand-new account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for a given account is also easy – you will simply have to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t have to create a new FTP account if you simply want to specify what web files an existing one can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for famous FTP clients like FileZilla and Core FTP.
