The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given folder is to set up an FTP account and to specify content access limits concerning your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t be able to access any other files or any sensitive details within your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be launched online and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without efforts.

FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages, offers a functionality-loaded FTP Manager tool that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account requires literally just one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at a given time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what folder a certain account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP app like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you needing to do anything manually on your end. Moreover, you can view the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains that you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed from the easy-to-use, in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all of the things associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts quickly and easily. It will take one single mouse click to set up a new account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for an account is also amazingly easy – you will just have to click on it and pick the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not have to create a brand-new FTP account if you simply want to define what web files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for widespread FTP client programs such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
