The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access limits in regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be provided with access to any other content or any sensitive details within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to run different websites built with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published on the web and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts effortlessly.

FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux shared web hosting, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager tool that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally only a click and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can quickly locate the one that you want. You will also be able to see what folder a particular account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you wish to connect to your web space using an FTP client like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. What’s more, you can view the complete list of all the domains or subdomains which you’re able to use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed from the time and effort saving, in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and all the things associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It’ll take one mouse click to create a brand new account, to remove an active one or simply to change its password. You can also view the full list of 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 their access path or by username. Changing the path for a particular account is also incredibly easy – you will only have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up window that will appear, so you will not need to create a new account in case you simply need to define what website files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for famous FTP programs like Core FTP and FileZilla.
