The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to put website content access limits in regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not acquire access to any other content or any private information in your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be launched online and later edited using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

If you open a shared hosting account with us, you’ll receive access to the stunningly powerful FTP Manager, that’s part of our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, apart from the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access another directory. Auto-config files can be downloaded too, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can just download the particular file for FileZilla, Core FTP or CyberDuck and install it on your personal computer. To make the management itself easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered from the user-friendly, in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all of the things related to them, so you will be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It will take a single click of the mouse to set up a new account, to remove an active one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the full list of all your 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 given account is also very easy – you simply need to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up that will show up, so you won’t need to create a brand-new account if you simply need to specify what files an existing account can access. You can also take advantage of auto-config files for commonly used FTP client apps such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
