The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to create an FTP account and to put website content access limits regarding your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not be provided with access to any other files or any private data within your account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to manage different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you open a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be provided with access to the exceptionally powerful FTP Manager, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool offers several different options, apart from the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access another directory. Auto-config files are available for download too, so you will not need to set up anything manually – you can just download the respective file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and run it on your personal computer. To make the management simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to make use of a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a new FTP account and choose which directory it will have access to with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use interface. A list of all the accounts that you’ve created will be available in the same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to effortlessly find the account that you want. Changing the path for an existing FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or changing its password requires a single click as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for famous desktop software apps like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
