The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a particular directory is to create an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions concerning your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be given access to any other files or any sensitive data in your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage a number of websites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published online and later modified using an FTP account with access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you open a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to access the super-powerful FTP Manager, that’s an integral part of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, besides the possibility to create or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access another directory. Auto-configuration files are available for download too, so you won’t have to set up anything manually – you can just download the given file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and install it on your computer. To make the administration itself easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the FTP accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered through the user-friendly, custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and everything associated with them, so you’ll be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and easily. It will take a single mouse click to create a brand-new FTP account, to delete an active one or simply to change its password. You can also view the full list of your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for a given account is also easy – you’ll only need to click on it and pick the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t have to create a brand-new account in case you simply wish to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for widely used FTP software applications like Core FTP and FileZilla.
