The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access restrictions regarding your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t be provided with access to any other content or any sensitive details in your web hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published on the Internet and later modified using an FTP account with access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts easily.

FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux cloud hosting, offers a functionality-packed FTP Manager tool that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally just a click and all the accounts that you have at a particular time will be shown alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you need. You will also be able to check what folder an account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. If you wish to access your web space using an FTP software app like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – that account will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. What’s more, you can view the full list of all the domains or sub-domains which you’re able to use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed via 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 everything associated with them, so you can administer all the accounts quickly and effortlessly. It will take a single click to create a new account, to remove an active one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a particular account is also extremely easy – you only have to click on it and choose the new directory in the pop-up that will show up, so you won’t need to create a new FTP account if you simply want to specify what files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for widespread FTP clients such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
