The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to put content access restrictions concerning your web 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 personal information in your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to manage different sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published and then edited using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Manager in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux hosting packages, offers a multi-function FTP Manager that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Setting up or removing an account requires literally just one mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any given time will be listed alphabetically, so you can easily find the one that you need. You’ll also be able to check what directory an account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you would like to access your web hosting space using an FTP application like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your PC – that account will be set up without you needing to do anything manually on your end. In addition, you can view a list of all the domains or subdomains that you are able to use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed from the simple-to-work-with, in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and all the things related to them, so you will be able to administer all the accounts quickly and effortlessly. It’ll take one click to create a brand new account, to delete an active one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the full list of your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a particular account is also extremely easy – you will just have to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not have to create a new account if you simply wish to specify what website files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for commonly used FTP software applications like Core FTP and FileZilla.
