The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions in regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t gain access to any other files or any personal info within your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of sites built with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux shared web hosting plans, offers a multifunctional FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Creating or deleting an account requires literally just one click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any particular moment will be displayed alphabetically, so you can swiftly locate the one that you need. You’ll also be able to check what folder a particular account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP software application such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – that account will be set up without you needing to do anything manually on your end. Moreover, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Even in case you have never had a hosting account previously, you will have no problem administering any part of your web presence if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us and the FTP part makes no exception. With the FTP Manager, which is an integral part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll have complete control over your FTP accounts via a quite simple-to-work-with interface. With only a few clicks, you will be able to do more or less everything – to create or to remove an FTP account, to edit its password, to alter the folder that it can connect to or to download auto-config files for FTP applications such as Core FTP and FileZilla. In case you have set up a large number of accounts, you’ll be able to administer them with ease, as you can sort them alphabetically in ascending or descending order either by username or by folder access path.
