The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions in regards to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not get access to any other files or any sensitive info in your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be published online and subsequently modified using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts easily.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

If you open a shared hosting account with us, you will receive access to the very powerful FTP Manager, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with a number of different options, apart from the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to view the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a different directory. Auto-config files are available for download too, so you will not need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and install it on your personal computer. To make the management simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
