The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a specific folder is to set up an FTP account and to specify website content access restrictions with regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t receive access to any other files or any sensitive info within your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published online and later modified using an FTP account with access to its very 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 without effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
If you open a shared hosting account with us, you will be provided with access to the amazingly powerful FTP Manager tool, which is an essential part of our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool includes a number of different options, aside from the possibility to create or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account will access a different folder. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available too, so you won’t need to configure anything manually – you can just download the specific file for Core FTP, FileZilla or CyberDuck and install it on your computer. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
