The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions in regards to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be given access to any other content or any private info in your hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the Internet and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without effort.

FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting

All our shared web hosting packages include a function-rich, yet easy-to-use FTP Manager, which will permit you to administer all the FTP accounts that you have without any hassles. The software instrument is included in our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and besides setting up and deleting accounts, you can edit the password associated with any active account with only 2 mouse clicks. You can modify the access level for any given FTP account just as easily – you just need to click on the access path associated with the account and then to select the new folder. What’s more, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP apps and set up any of the FTP accounts on your PC by simply installing that file. For easier and better management, you can arrange the accounts alphabetically on the basis of their usernames or their access paths.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed from the easy-to-use, custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you’ll be able to manage all the accounts quickly and effortlessly. It will take one single mouse click to set up a new FTP account, to delete an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also view the complete list of your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a specific account is also amazingly easy – you will just have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up that will show up, so you will not need to create a new account if you simply need to specify what web files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-configuration files for widely used FTP clients like Core FTP and FileZilla.
