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 limits concerning your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not acquire access to any other files or any private data in your hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to run different Internet sites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published 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 as long as you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Manager in Hosting

All our hosting plans come with a function-loaded, albeit simple-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to manage all the FTP accounts that you have set up without efforts. The tool is part of our next-generation Hepsia Control Panel and apart from creating and removing accounts, you can modify the password for any existing account with only 2 mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any given account just as easily – you only have to click on the access path associated with the account in question and then to select the new directory. Furthermore, you can download an auto-config file for different FTP programs and set up any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer simply by installing the file in question. For simpler and more efficient management, you can arrange the accounts alphabetically on the basis of their access paths or their usernames.
