The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the 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 acquire access to any other content or any sensitive info in your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published and then edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without efforts.

FTP Manager in Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux website hosting, offers a functionality-rich FTP Manager tool that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Creating or removing an account requires literally only one single click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular time will be listed in alphabetical order, so you can quickly find the one that you want. You will also be able to see what folder a given account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP 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. In addition, you can see a 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 simple-to-use, custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you’ll be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It will take one click to set up a new FTP account, to delete an active one or simply to change its password. You can also see the complete list of all your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for an account is also amazingly easy – you’ll just need to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not have to create a brand-new account in case you simply want to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for commonly used FTP client programs such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
