The simplest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a specific folder is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access limits in regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t have access to any other content or any sensitive details within your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to run a number of sites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published on the Internet and later modified using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without effort.
FTP Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
If you open a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll acquire access to the quite powerful FTP Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool offers several different options, besides the ability to set up or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a different directory. Auto-config files can be downloaded too, so you won’t need to configure anything manually – you can just download the respective file for Core FTP, CyberDuck or FileZilla and run it on your computer system. To make the administration itself simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
