The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the web files in a particular folder is to create an FTP account and to specify content access restrictions in regard to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t obtain access to any other files or any personal information within your account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites created with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each Internet site can be launched online and subsequently modified using an FTP account that has access to its own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages
, offers a multi-function FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Setting up or removing an account requires literally just one click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be shown in alphabetical order, so you can easily find the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what directory a certain account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you want to access your web space using an FTP client program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually on your end. Besides, you can view a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you can use.
