The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits in regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not be provided with access to any other content or any sensitive info in your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain different websites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the web and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts easily.

FTP Manager in Hosting

If you open a hosting account with us, you will have access to the amazingly powerful FTP Manager, that is an integral part of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, besides the possibility to set up or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account will access a different directory. Auto-config files can be downloaded too, so you won’t need to configure anything manually – you can just download the specific file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and install it on your computer system. To make the management itself simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the FTP accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed via the easy-to-use, custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and everything related to them, so you’ll be able to manage all the accounts quickly and effortlessly. It’ll take one single click to create a brand new FTP account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the complete list of all your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for a particular account is also exceptionally easy – you’ll just have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not need to set up a brand-new FTP account in case you simply wish to define what website files an existing account can access. You can also use auto-config files for commonly used FTP programs like Core FTP and FileZilla.
