Discover what an FTP Manager is actually and why it’s useful to have one when building a website.
The easiest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a specific directory is to set up an FTP account and to put website content access limits with regard to your hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t receive access to any other files or any sensitive details within your web hosting account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of websites built with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be brought online and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without hassles.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux web hosting
, offers a function-loaded FTP Manager tool that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Creating or removing an account requires literally just one single click and all the accounts that you have at a particular time will be listed alphabetically, so you can effortlessly find the one that you need. You will also be able to check what directory a particular account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. In case you wish to access your web space using an FTP app such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your computer – the account in question will be configured without you having to do anything manually yourself. Besides, you can see a list of all the domains or sub-domains which you are able to use.
