The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to put content access limits in regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not be granted access to any other files or any personal details in your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of sites built with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the Internet and later modified using an FTP account that has access to its own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts easily.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

If you open a shared hosting account with us, you’ll acquire access to the incredibly powerful FTP Manager tool, that is a part of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool includes a number of different options, besides the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a different directory. Auto-configuration files are available for download too, so you won’t need to configure anything manually – you can just download the particular file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and install it on your computer. To make the management easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed via the intuitive, in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and all the things related to them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It’ll take a single click of the mouse to create a brand new account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the full list of your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for the sake of convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a given account is also amazingly easy – you will only have to click on it and choose the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t have to set up a new account if you simply wish to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also use auto-configuration files for popular FTP client apps such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
