The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions in regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t obtain access to any other files or any private information in your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be brought online and then modified using an FTP account that has access to its very own site 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 in a seamless way.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

All our shared hosting packages come with a feature-packed, yet easy-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up easily. The software tool is part of our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel and aside from setting up and deleting accounts, you’ll be able to edit the password associated with any active account with just two mouse clicks. You can modify the access level for any specific FTP account just as easily – you will only have to click on the access path associated with the account and then to pick the new folder. In addition, you can download an auto-configuration file for various FTP software programs and set up any of the FTP accounts on your computer simply by running the file in question. For simpler and better control, you can arrange the accounts alphabetically based on their usernames or their access paths.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered from the easy-to-work-with, custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all the things related to them, so you can manage all the accounts quickly and easily. It’ll take a single click of the mouse to create a new account, to remove an active one or simply to change its password. You can also view the complete list of all 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. Changing the path for a specific account is also rather easy – you only need to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up window that will show up, so you won’t need to create a whole new account if you simply need to define what files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for popular FTP clients such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
