The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access restrictions in regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t have access to any other files or any private details in your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run different websites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published and subsequently modified using an FTP account that has access to its own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.

The tool is an essential part of our leading-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel and besides creating and removing accounts, you’ll be able to edit the password for any active account with just 2 mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any specific FTP account just as easily – you’ll only have to click on the access path associated with the account in question and then to select the new folder. Also, you can download an auto-config file for different FTP programs and configure any of the FTP accounts on your PC by simply installing the file in question.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to make use of a number of options that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a new FTP account and choose which directory it will access with only a couple of clicks through a user-friendly graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you’ve got will be displayed in the same section as well and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to swiftly find the FTP account that you want.
