The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to specify website content access limits in regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t obtain access to any other content or any private info in your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published online and then modified using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through the simple-to-navigate, custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all of the things related to them, so you can manage all the accounts swiftly and easily. It will take one single click to create a brand new account, to remove an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also see the full list of all your accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Changing the path for a particular account is also exceptionally easy – you will only have to click on it and pick the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not need to set up a brand-new FTP account if you simply want to define what files an existing account can access. You can also take advantage of auto-configuration files for widespread FTP client programs such as Core FTP and FileZilla.
