The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a certain directory is to set up an FTP account and to put content access limits regarding your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not gain access to any other content or any private information within your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the web and later updated using an FTP account with access to its very own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts effortlessly.

FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you open a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll obtain access to the rather powerful FTP Manager, that’s part of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, apart from the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access another folder. Auto-configuration files are available for download too, so you won’t need to set up anything manually – you can just download the particular file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your computer system. To make the management simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
