The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions with regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t have access to any other content or any sensitive data in your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be uploaded and later edited using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.

FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux cloud website hosting services, offers a feature-rich FTP Manager tool that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or removing an account requires literally only a click and all the accounts that you have at any given time will be shown alphabetically, so you can effortlessly find the one that you need. You will also be able to see what folder an account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you would like to access your hosting space using an FTP program like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – that account will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. What’s more, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you are able to use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server plans come bundled with the multifunction Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager software tool. It will give you all the options that you may require in order to manage your FTP accounts with no effort from one place. It takes one click of the mouse to create or to delete an FTP account and, with two more clicks of the mouse, you can change the directory that this account can connect to. If you set up an enormous number of accounts, you can specify how many of them will be displayed on one page and whether they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-config files will enable you to configure a software program like FileZilla or Core FTP to access any of your accounts without the need to do anything manually.
