The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a particular directory is to set up an FTP account and to put content access limits concerning your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not be granted access to any other files or any sensitive information in your hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux cloud hosting
, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager tool that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account requires literally only a single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any given time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to check what directory a specific account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you want to connect to your web space using an FTP client program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – that account will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. What’s more, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains that you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
plans come with the function-loaded Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the controls that you might need to manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way from one place. It takes a single click to set up or to delete an account and, with two more clicks, you can edit the folder that this account can access. If you set up a large 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 on the basis of their usernames and access paths. Downloadable auto-configuration 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.
