Find out what an FTP Manager is actually and why it’s useful to get one when developing a website.
The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits with regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t have access to any other files or any personal data within your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites built with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the web and subsequently updated using an FTP account that has access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to create and administer your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
If you open a shared website hosting
account with our company, you’ll be able to access the incredibly powerful FTP Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool offers a number of different options, besides the possibility to set up or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account will access another folder. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded too, so you will not need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and run it on your computer system. To make the management itself easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the FTP accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you open a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you’ll be able to make use of a number of features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and specify which folder it will have access to with only a few clicks through a simple-to-use GUI. A list of all the accounts that you’ve created will be displayed in the same section too and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to effortlessly locate the account that you need. Changing the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or changing its password requires one click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for popular desktop software programs like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
