Discover what an FTP Manager is and why it’s useful to have one when setting up a web site.
The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a given directory is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions with regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not be given access to any other content or any private details in your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to run different Internet sites built with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be published and later modified using an FTP account with access to its very own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to create and administer your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
All our web hosting
plans come with a multifunctional, yet simple-to-work-with FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you have set up easily. The software instrument is an essential part of our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel and besides setting up and deleting accounts, you’ll be able to modify the password associated with any existing account with only two mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any specific account just as easily – you’ll only need to click on the access path for the account in question and then to select the new directory. What’s more, you can download an auto-configuration file for several FTP software applications and configure any of the FTP accounts on your computer by simply installing that file. For easier and more effective control, you can sort the FTP accounts alphabetically based on their usernames or their access paths.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you will be able to make use of different features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and define which folder it will access with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-use graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you have set up will be available in the exact same section too and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to quickly find the FTP account that you want. Modifying the path for an existing account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one mouse click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download configuration files for widely used desktop software apps such as FileZilla and CyberDuck.
