You can use multiple FTP accounts to manage your web content if you have several websites within the same hosting account. You can give different persons access only to given folders, for instance – web developers or IT persons from the company, and be certain that they will not be able to connect to any other files or anything else within the hosting account, as the FTP accounts have restricted access. Also, you can create and manage a number of different sites simultaneously with a website building app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver (as these applications use FTP to access the server) and upload the site files both when you create them and when you update them. An important part of doing these things is the option to set up and administer your FTP accounts swiftly and easily.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
When you you open a website hosting account with us, you will receive access to the very powerful FTP Manager tool, that is a part of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool offers several different options, apart from the ability to create or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to see the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account will access another directory. Auto-config files are available for download as well, so you will not need to set up anything manually – you can simply download the given file for Core FTP, CyberDuck or FileZilla and install it on your personal computer. To make the administration simpler, the FTP Manager will permit you to see all the FTP accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to make use of a number of features that are available in the FTP Manager section of our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. You can create a new FTP account and choose what directory it will access with only a couple of mouse clicks via an easy-to-use graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up will be available in the same section as well and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you’ll be able to easily find the FTP account that you need. Modifying the path for an active account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, whereas deleting an account or updating its password requires one click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for widely used desktop FTP software programs like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
