The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to specify content access limits regarding your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t receive access to any other content or any sensitive info within your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be uploaded and later edited using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

All our shared hosting plans include a feature-loaded, albeit intuitive FTP Manager, which will permit you to administer all the FTP accounts that you have set up with no effort. The tool is part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel and besides setting up and removing FTP accounts, you can edit the password for any existing account with only 2 clicks of the mouse. You can change the level of access for any given account just as easily – you’ll only need to click on the access path for the account in question and then to pick the new folder. In addition, you can download an auto-config file for a number of FTP client programs and set up any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by installing the file in question. For easier and more efficient management, you can arrange the accounts alphabetically based on their usernames or their access paths.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are administered from the time and effort saving, tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you will be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and effortlessly. It will take one mouse click to create a brand-new account, to remove an active one or simply to change its password. You can also view the full list of all 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 username or by their access path. Modifying the path for an account is also very easy – you’ll simply have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t have to create a new FTP account in case you simply wish to define what web files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for widely used FTP software apps such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
