The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a particular directory is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions concerning your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other content or any personal data within your web hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to run a number of websites built with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be launched online and subsequently modified using an FTP account that has access to its very own website 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 without hassle.

FTP Manager in Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux website hosting, offers a functionality-loaded FTP Manager that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally just one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular moment will be shown alphabetically, so you can quickly find the one that you need. You’ll also be able to check what folder a certain account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you’d like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually on your end. Besides, you can see the full list of all the domains or subdomains which you’re able to use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server configurations are managed through the time and effort saving, in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all the things associated with them, so you can manage all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It will take one single click of the mouse to set up a brand new account, to delete an active one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the complete list of your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for a particular account is also quite easy – you will just need to click on it and select the new directory in the pop-up window that will show up, so you won’t have to create a brand-new account if you simply want to define what web files an existing account can access. You can also make use of auto-configuration files for commonly used FTP software programs such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
