The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access restrictions concerning your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not be given access to any other content or any sensitive details in your web hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to run different websites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the web 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’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without any effort.

FTP Manager in Website Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux website hosting packages, offers a feature-packed FTP Manager tool that will give you total control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally only a click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any given time will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can quickly find the one that you want. You will also be able to check what directory a particular account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. If you wish to connect to your hosting space using an FTP program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains that you’re able to use.
