The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to specify content access limits in regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be provided with access to any other files or any sensitive data in your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of websites built with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be brought online and subsequently modified using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without efforts.

FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you you open a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll obtain access to the extremely powerful FTP Manager, that is included in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, besides the possibility to set up or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to view the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account will access a different directory. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available as well, so you will not have to set up anything manually – you can simply download the particular file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your computer. To make the administration easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to make use of various options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and choose what folder it will have access to with just a couple of mouse clicks via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you’ve got will be available in the exact same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to quickly find the FTP account that you want. Changing the access path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, whereas removing an account or changing its password requires a single click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also make use of config files for commonly used desktop apps like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
