Learn what an FTP Manager is and why it’s beneficial to have one when setting up a web site.
The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access limits concerning your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they will not be able to access any other files or any private info in your hosting account. You can also set up multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of websites created with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published on the web and subsequently edited using an FTP account that has access to its own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux shared packages
, offers a functionality-loaded FTP Manager that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally only a single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular moment will be shown in alphabetical order, so you can effortlessly find the one that you want. You will also be able to check what folder an account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. In case you wish to access your web hosting space using an FTP software program such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration 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 on your end. Also, you can see a list of all the domains or subdomains that you’re able to use.
