The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to specify website content access limits regarding your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t be given access to any other files or any sensitive information within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to manage a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be uploaded and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts with ease.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you open a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll have access to the pretty powerful FTP Manager tool, which is included in our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, besides the ability to create or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a different directory. Auto-configuration files are available for download too, so you will not have to set up anything manually – you can simply download the respective file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and install it on your computer system. To make the management easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server plans come bundled with the feature-packed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the options that you might need so as to administer your FTP accounts effortlessly from one single place. It takes a single click to set up or to delete an account and, with 2 more clicks, you can change the folder that can be accessed with this account. If you set up a large number of FTP accounts, you can define how many of them will be shown on one page and if they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will permit you to configure an FTP software program such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your FTP accounts without the need to do anything manually on your end.
