Uncover what an FTP Manager is actually and why it’s helpful to have one when building a website.
You can use separate FTP accounts to manage your web content if you’ve got a number of websites in the very same web hosting account. You can provide different persons with access only to given folders, for example – web developers or IT specialists from the company, and be certain that they won’t be able to access any other files or anything else in the hosting account, since the FTP accounts have restricted access. Plus, you can create and manage a number of different websites simultaneously with a web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage (since these apps use FTP to access the server) and publish 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 manage your FTP accounts swiftly and seamlessly.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux shared hosting packages
, offers a feature-loaded FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally just one single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular moment will be displayed alphabetically, so you can swiftly find the one that you want. You will also be able to see what directory an account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. If you wish to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP app like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your PC – that account will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Also, you can see the complete list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
configurations are administered via the simple-to-navigate, custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all of the things related to them, so you can manage all the accounts swiftly and effortlessly. It’ll take a single click to create a brand new FTP account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also view the complete list of all your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for your convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for an account is also exceptionally easy – you simply have to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up window that will appear, so you won’t need to set up a whole new account in case you simply wish to specify what web files an existing one can access. You can also make use of auto-config files for widespread FTP software programs such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
