The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions in regards to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be given access to any other content or any sensitive details within your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites built with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be uploaded 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 provided that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.

FTP Manager in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux website hosting, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager that will give you total control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally just a click and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can effortlessly find the one that you need. You will also be able to see what folder a specific account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you want to connect to your web space using an FTP software program like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you needing to do anything manually yourself. In addition, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you are able to use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed through the easy-to-work-with, custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all of the things related to them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It will take a single click of the mouse to set up a new account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the full list of your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for a specific account is also really easy – you just need to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up window that will show up, so you won’t need to create a brand new FTP account in case you simply need to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-config files for widespread FTP software apps such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
