The simplest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to put content access restrictions concerning your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not receive access to any other content or any sensitive info in your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be launched online and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts effortlessly.

FTP Manager in Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux hosting, offers a multifunctional FTP Manager that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally only a click and all the accounts that you have at a given moment will be displayed alphabetically, so you can easily find the one that you need. You’ll also be able to check what directory an account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you want to connect to your hosting space using an FTP software program such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your PC – the account in question will be set up without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can view the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains that you’re able to use.
