The easiest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to put content access limits regarding your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not receive access to any other files or any private info within your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the Internet and later updated using an FTP account that has access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting packages include a multifunction, yet easy-to-work-with FTP Manager, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up easily. The software tool is an essential part of our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and aside from creating and deleting accounts, you’ll be able to change the password for any existing account with only two clicks of the mouse. You can modify the level of access for any given account just as easily – you will just have to click on the access path for the account in question and then to choose the new directory. In addition, you can download an auto-config file for various FTP programs and configure any of the FTP accounts on your PC by simply running the file in question. For easier and more effective management, you can sort the FTP accounts in alphabetical order based on their usernames or their access paths.
