The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions in regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be provided with access to any other content or any personal info within your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published on the web and later updated using an FTP account with access to its very own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts with ease.

FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting

If you open a shared website hosting account with our company, you will receive access to the incredibly powerful FTP Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, aside from the possibility to set up or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to check 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 can be downloaded as well, so you will not need to set up anything manually – you can simply download the respective file for Core FTP, FileZilla or CyberDuck and install it on your personal computer. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to use different features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our avant-garde Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create a brand-new FTP account and define which folder it will have access to with only a few clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate GUI. A list of all the accounts that you’ve set up will be displayed in the same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to effortlessly locate the FTP account that you need. Modifying the path for an active account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas deleting an account or changing its password requires a single mouse click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of config files for commonly used desktop FTP client apps like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
