The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a given directory is to set up an FTP account and to specify website content access limits in regards to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t be able to access any other content or any sensitive details within your web hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to manage different websites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published online and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its very own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts easily.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

If you open a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be given access to the incredibly powerful FTP Manager, that’s included in our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with a number of different options, aside from the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access another folder. Auto-configuration files are available for download too, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and install it on your computer system. To make the administration easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to take advantage of a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and choose what folder it will access with only a couple of mouse clicks through an intuitive graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you have created will be available in the very same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can arrange them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to easily find the FTP account that you want. Modifying the access path for an active account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while deleting an account or editing its password requires one single click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of configuration files for commonly used desktop clients like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
