The simplest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to set content access limits with regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not obtain access to any other content or any private information in your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to run a number of sites built with a desktop web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published and later edited using an FTP account with access to its own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to create and manage your FTP accounts without effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our Linux shared hosting packages
, offers a multi-feature FTP Manager that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally just one click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any particular moment will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can effortlessly find the one that you want. You will also be able to check what folder a particular account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you wish to connect to your web space using an FTP client such as FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – that account will be set up without you having to do anything manually on your end. Additionally, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you are able to use.
