The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions concerning your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not be able to access any other content or any personal info in your web hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain different websites built with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the web and later updated using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Hosting
All our hosting packages include a feature-loaded, yet user-friendly FTP Manager, which will enable you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have set up without any hassles. The FTP Manager is an essential part of our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and besides creating and deleting FTP accounts, you will be able to modify the password for any existing account with just 2 clicks. You can modify the access level for any given account just as easily – you’ll only need to click on the access path associated with the account and then to choose the new folder. Also, you can download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software programs and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by running that file. For easier and more effective control, you can arrange the FTP accounts alphabetically based on their access paths or their usernames.
