The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a particular directory is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions regarding your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be able to access any other files or any personal information in your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites created with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published on the web and then updated using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux shared hosting packages, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager tool that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Setting up or removing an account requires literally only one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be shown alphabetically, so you can quickly locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to check what directory a particular account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you would like to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP software application such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually on your end. Also, you can view a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to take advantage of a number of features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create a brand new FTP account and select which directory it will access with only a couple of mouse clicks through an easy-to-use GUI. A list of all the accounts that you’ve got will be available in the same section as well and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to swiftly locate the account that you want. Modifying the path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one single click of the mouse as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for commonly used desktop apps such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
