You can make use of separate FTP accounts to administer your web content in case you’ve got several Internet sites in the very same web hosting account. You can grant different people access only to given directories, for example – web developers or IT experts from the company, and be sure that they will not be able to access any other directories or anything else in the hosting account, since the FTP accounts have limited access. Plus, you can set up and administer several different sites simultaneously with a web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage (since these applications use FTP to establish a connection to the web server) and publish the site files both when you create them and when you modify them. An essential part of accomplishing these tasks is the option to create and administer your FTP accounts quickly and effortlessly.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
If you open a shared hosting account with us, you will be granted access to the very powerful FTP Manager, that’s part of our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool comes with a number of different options, apart from the ability to set up or remove FTP accounts. You will be able to see the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account will access another directory. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available too, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can simply download the specific file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your personal computer. To make the administration simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to view all the accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to use different features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand-new FTP account and specify which folder it will have access to with just a few clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate GUI. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have created will be available in the same section too and, for convenience’s sake, you can arrange them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to quickly locate the account that you need. Modifying the access path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or updating its password requires one mouse click as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of config files for commonly used desktop software apps such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
