The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions in regards to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not obtain access to any other files or any sensitive data in your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run different Internet sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be brought online and later edited using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts effortlessly.

FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux cloud website hosting, offers a functionality-rich FTP Manager tool that will give you total control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or removing an account requires literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any given time will be listed alphabetically, so you can swiftly find the one that you want. You’ll also be able to check what folder a given account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP client such as FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. Also, you can view the full list of all the domains or sub-domains that you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed via the user-friendly, custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything associated with them, so you can manage all the accounts quickly and easily. It’ll take a single mouse click to set up a new FTP account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the complete list of all your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for a given account is also pretty easy – you will just have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up that will show up, so you will not have to set up a brand-new account in case you simply want to specify what web files an existing one can access. You can also use auto-configuration files for commonly used FTP software programs such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
