Learn what an FTP Manager is and why it’s helpful to have one when creating a website.
The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a particular directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits with regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not be granted access to any other files or any private data within your account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of Internet sites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be launched online and then updated using an FTP account with access to its very own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
If you open a shared hosting
account with us, you’ll acquire access to the amazingly powerful FTP Manager, which is part of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, aside from the possibility to set up or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access a different folder. Auto-configuration files are available for download as well, so you won’t have to configure anything manually – you can just download the given file for Core FTP, FileZilla or CyberDuck and install it on your computer. To make the management itself easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts are managed from the simple-to-use, custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to administering your FTP accounts and all of the things associated with them, so you will be able to administer all the accounts swiftly and easily. It will take a single click to set up a brand new FTP account, to delete an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the full list of all your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for an account is also extremely easy – you just have to click on it and select 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 wish to define what website files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-configuration files for famous FTP client programs such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
