The easiest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to put content access restrictions with regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not have access to any other content or any sensitive details within your account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published on the Internet and then edited using an FTP account with access to its own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without efforts.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

If you open a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be given access to the really powerful FTP Manager tool, that is part of our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, apart from the possibility to set up or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account will access another directory. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded too, so you won’t need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the given file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your personal computer. To make the administration itself easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the FTP accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to use different options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and choose what directory it will access with just a couple of mouse clicks through an intuitive graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created will be displayed in the exact same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to quickly find the FTP account that you need. Changing the access path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, whereas deleting an account or updating its password requires one click as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of configuration files for popular desktop FTP apps such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
