The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a particular folder is to create an FTP account and to set content access restrictions concerning your hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t receive access to any other files or any private information in your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage a number of websites created with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the World Wide Web and later edited using an FTP account that has access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud website hosting plans
, offers a feature-rich FTP Manager tool that will give you full control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you have at a particular time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can effortlessly find the one that you need. You will also be able to check what folder a specific account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you would like to connect to your hosting space using an FTP app like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can see the complete list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.
