Uncover what an FTP Manager is actually and why it’s useful to get one when building a website.
The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a specific directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits in regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be granted access to any other files or any personal info in your account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain different sites created with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the Internet and then modified using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts with ease.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our shared website hosting plans
, offers a feature-rich FTP Manager that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally just a single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular moment will be listed alphabetically, so you can easily locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what directory a certain account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. In case you’d like to access your web space using an FTP program like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. Besides, you can view the full list of all the domains or sub-domains that you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
packages come bundled with the function-loaded Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which includes our FTP Manager software tool. It will provide you with all the controls that you may require to administer your FTP accounts with no effort from one single place. It takes a single click of the mouse to set up or to delete an FTP account and, with 2 more clicks, you can edit the folder that this account can access. In case you set up an enormous number of accounts, you can choose how many of them will be displayed on one page and if they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will permit you to set up a software program such as Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without you having to do anything manually.
