You can use separate FTP accounts to administer your web content in case you have several sites within the same website hosting account. You can give different individuals access only to given directories, for example – web designers or IT professionals from the company, and be sure that they will not be able to connect to any other files or anything else within the website hosting account, since the FTP accounts have restricted access. Plus, you can create and manage a number of different Internet sites at the same time with a website building app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver (since these apps use FTP to establish a connection to the web server) and publish your website files both when you create them and when you edit them. An essential part of accomplishing these tasks is the possibility to set up and administer your FTP accounts swiftly and seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
If you open a website hosting
account with our company, you’ll be given access to the pretty powerful FTP Manager tool, which is an integral part of our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, apart from the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access a different folder. Downloadable auto-config files are available too, so you will not need to configure anything manually – you can simply download the particular file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and run it on your PC. To make the administration simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will be able to take advantage of a number of options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a brand new FTP account and select which directory it will access with only a couple of clicks via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have created will be available in the very same section as well and, for your convenience, you can sort them by username or access path in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to swiftly locate the FTP account that you want. Changing the access path for an active FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while deleting an account or updating its password requires one single mouse click too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also download config files for commonly used desktop FTP programs such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
