The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a certain folder is to set up an FTP account and to specify content access limits with regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they will not gain access to any other files or any private information within your web hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to run different websites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be uploaded and then edited using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.
FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting plans come with a functionality-rich, albeit user-friendly FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to administer all the FTP accounts that you’ve got seamlessly. The tool is part of our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel and besides creating and removing accounts, you will be able to edit the password associated with any active account with only two mouse clicks. You can change the access level for any given FTP account just as easily – you will just need to click on the access path for the account and then to select the new directory. Also, you can download an auto-config file for several FTP clients and set up any of the FTP accounts on your PC simply by running the given file. For easier and more efficient control, you can sort the FTP accounts alphabetically based on their usernames or their access paths.
