The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a specific folder is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions in regards to your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be able to access any other files or any sensitive data within your hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of websites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the web and later updated using an FTP account with access to its very own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our shared hosting plans, offers a function-rich FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally just a single mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any given moment will be listed in alphabetical order, so you can swiftly locate the one that you want. You will also be able to check what folder a particular account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you want to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP software program like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can see the full list of all the domains or sub-domains which you’re able to use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to make use of different options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create a brand-new FTP account and select what folder it will have access to with just a few clicks through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you have created will be displayed in the same section as well and, for your convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to easily find the account that you want. Modifying the access path for an existing account is as simple as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one single click as well. With the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for popular desktop apps such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
