The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a particular folder is to create an FTP account and to set website content access limits regarding your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not obtain access to any other files or any sensitive data in your hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites built with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be brought online and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to create and administer your FTP accounts with ease.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
All our shared website hosting packages include a multi-feature, yet easy-to-use FTP Manager, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up without hassle. The software instrument is an integral part of our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and apart from creating and deleting FTP accounts, you’ll be able to modify the password for any active account with just 2 mouse clicks. You can modify the access level for any specific FTP account just as easily – you only need to click on the access path associated with the account in question and then to pick the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-config file for several FTP client apps and set up any of the FTP accounts on your computer by simply running the file in question. For easier and better control, you can arrange the FTP accounts in alphabetical order on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server packages come with the multifunctional Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will offer you all the controls that you might require so as to administer your FTP accounts without efforts from a single location. It takes one single click to create or to delete an account and, with two more clicks of the mouse, you can update the folder that this account can connect to. If you set up an immense number of accounts, you can decide how many of them will be shown on one page and whether they should be listed in descending or ascending order based on their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-config files will allow you to configure an FTP client program like Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your FTP accounts without you having to do anything manually on your end.
