The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to specify content access limits with regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other content or any personal info within your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage different sites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be uploaded and subsequently edited using an FTP account with 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 administer your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
All our cloud web hosting plans include a multi-function, yet user-friendly FTP Manager, which will allow you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have with no effort. The tool is included in our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel and aside from creating and removing FTP accounts, you’ll be able to edit the password associated with any existing account with just two mouse clicks. You can modify the level of access for any given FTP account just as easily – you just have to click on the access path for the account in question and then to choose the new directory. Also, you can download an auto-config file for several FTP client applications and configure any of the FTP accounts on your PC by simply installing the file in question. For easier and more efficient control, you can sort the accounts alphabetically on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to make use of various options that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a new FTP account and choose which folder it will have access to with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you have set up will be available in the same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to quickly find the account that you want. Modifying the path for an active FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas deleting an account or changing its password requires a single click of the mouse as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for popular desktop FTP client apps like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
