Learn what an FTP Manager is actually and why it’s beneficial to have one when developing a web site.
Connecting to your web connect via FTP will be fast and easy. You will be able to upload/download files/directories with only a few clicks. Aside from managing the entire content, you can also provide other users with access to a given section of your web hosting account without providing them with access to the hosting Control Panel where they can see private e-mails or other info they’re not supposed to. This can be done by setting up a different FTP account that they can use to connect only to one single folder in the hosting account. Such an option is rather handy in case you use different web designers or if you rely on a web design app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver to run a number of Internet sites at once, since you can create a separate FTP account for each person or each site. In such a case, it is vital to be able to administer your FTP accounts with no effort.
FTP Manager in Website Hosting
When you you open a website hosting
account with us, you will be granted access to the exceptionally powerful FTP Manager tool, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool includes a number of different options, aside from the possibility to create or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a separate directory. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded too, so you won’t have to set up anything manually – you can just download the particular file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your personal computer. To make the administration easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, based on either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts are administered from the easy-to-work-with, tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections – the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and anything associated with them, so you will be able to manage all the accounts swiftly and seamlessly. It will take a single mouse click to create a brand new account, to remove an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also see the full list of your FTP accounts in this Control Panel section and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by username or by their access path. Changing the path for a given account is also quite easy – you simply have to click on it and pick the new directory in the pop-up that will appear, so you will not need to set up a whole new FTP account in case you simply need to specify what web files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-config files for popular FTP applications like FileZilla and Core FTP.
