The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a given folder is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions in regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t acquire access to any other content or any private details in your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published and later modified using an FTP account that has access to its own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts easily.

FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you open a shared web hosting account with our company, you will get access to the exceptionally powerful FTP Manager, which is an essential part of our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with a number of different options, besides the possibility to create or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account will access a different folder. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available too, so you will not need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and install it on your personal computer. To make the management easier, the FTP Manager will allow 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

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered via the time and effort saving, in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and anything associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It will take a single click of the mouse to create a new account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the full list of all your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a particular account is also easy – you will just need to click on it and choose the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not have to create a brand new account if you simply need to define what website files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for widespread FTP client apps such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
