The simplest 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 in regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not get access to any other files or any private data within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to manage different sites built with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published on the Internet and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux shared website hosting, offers a multi-feature FTP Manager that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally just a single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be shown alphabetically, so you can quickly find the one that you need. You will also be able to check what folder a given account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you want to connect to your hosting space using an FTP app like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – the account in question will be configured without you having to do anything manually on your end. What’s more, you can see the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains that you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered through the easy-to-use, tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and everything associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts swiftly and effortlessly. It’ll take one click of the mouse to set up a brand new account, to delete an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also view the full list of your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a given account is also quite easy – you simply have to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not need to create a whole new FTP account if you simply want to define what website files an existing one can access. You can also use auto-configuration files for popular FTP client apps like Core FTP and FileZilla.
