What's an FTP Manager? How much useful is it when you are controlling a web site?
The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a specific folder is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access restrictions regarding your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for instance, they won’t have access to any other content or any personal details in your hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage a number of sites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be launched online and subsequently edited using an FTP account with access to its own domain name folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Website Hosting
If you open a shared website hosting
account with us, you will be granted access to the amazingly powerful FTP Manager, that’s an essential part of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, besides the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You will be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account in question will access a different folder. Downloadable auto-config files are available as well, so you will not need to set up anything manually – you can simply download the respective file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your PC. To make the administration simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
plans come bundled with the functionality-packed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which contains our FTP Manager tool. It will give you all the controls that you might require in order to manage your FTP accounts without hassles from a single location. It takes one click of the mouse to create or to delete an FTP account and, with 2 more clicks, you can update the folder that this account can access. If you create multiple accounts, you can define how many of them will be shown on one page and whether they should be listed in ascending or descending order based on their access paths and usernames. Downloadable auto-configuration files will enable you to configure an FTP client app like Core FTP or FileZilla to access any of your accounts without you having to do anything manually.
