You can use separate FTP accounts to manage your website content in case you have several sites within one and the same hosting account. You can provide different individuals with access only to particular directories, for instance – web developers or IT specialists from the company, and be certain that they will not be able to connect to any other files or anything else in the hosting account, since the FTP accounts have restricted access. In addition, you can set up and administer a number of different websites at once using a website building application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver (as these applications make use of FTP to make a connection to the server) and upload your site files both when you create them and when you modify them. A vital part of doing these tasks is the possibility to set up and manage your FTP accounts quickly and easily.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux shared hosting
, offers a multi-function FTP Manager tool that will give you total control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally just a single mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any particular time will be shown alphabetically, so you can quickly locate the one that you need. You’ll also be able to check what folder a certain account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. In case you wish to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP program such as FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Besides, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you’ll be able to make use of different options that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can create a brand new FTP account and choose which folder it will access with only a couple of clicks through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface. A list of all the accounts that you have created will be available in the same section as well and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them by username or access path in ascending or descending order, so you’ll be able to easily locate the FTP account that you want. Changing the path for an existing account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, while removing an account or editing its password requires one click of the mouse too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for widely used desktop FTP clients like CyberDuck and FileZilla.
