The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to put content access restrictions in regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t be granted access to any other content or any sensitive details in your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage different Internet sites built with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published and subsequently edited using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to create and administer your FTP accounts easily.
FTP Manager in Hosting
If you open a hosting account with us, you’ll have access to the pretty powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s an essential part of our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool includes a number of different options, aside from the possibility to create or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account will access a different directory. Auto-config files can be downloaded as well, so you won’t have to set up anything manually – you can just download the respective file for Core FTP, FileZilla or CyberDuck and run it on your computer. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
