The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a particular folder is to create an FTP account and to specify content access limits regarding your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not get access to any other content or any sensitive information within your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage different sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the World Wide Web and later edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting plans include a multi-feature, yet intuitive FTP Manager, which will permit you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have created with no effort. The software tool is part of our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel and aside from creating and removing accounts, you can update the password for any active account with just 2 mouse clicks. You can modify the access level for any given account just as easily – you only need to click on the access path for the account in question and then to pick the new folder. Furthermore, you can download an auto-config file for different FTP software programs and set up any of the FTP accounts on your computer simply by installing that file. For simpler and better management, you can sort the FTP accounts alphabetically based on their access paths or their usernames.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to use a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and select what folder it will access with only a couple of clicks through an easy-to-work-with interface. A list of all the accounts that you’ve created will be displayed in the same section as well and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to easily locate the account that you need. Changing the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while deleting an account or changing its password requires one mouse click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for commonly used desktop FTP client programs such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
