The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access restrictions regarding your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t gain access to any other content or any private info in your account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain different websites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published online and later updated using an FTP account with access to its very own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
If you open a website hosting account with us, you’ll be granted access to the pretty powerful FTP Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with several different options, besides the possibility to create or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a different folder. Auto-config files are available for download as well, so you will not have to set up anything manually – you can just download the particular file for CyberDuck, FileZilla or Core FTP and run it on your computer system. To make the administration itself easier, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the FTP accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
