What's an FTP Manager? How much useful is it with regard to taking care of a website?
You can use multiple FTP accounts to administer your website content if you have a number of websites within one and the same hosting account. You can provide different persons with access only to given folders, for instance – web developers or IT specialists from the company, and be sure that they won’t be able to connect to any other files or anything else in the website hosting account, since the FTP accounts have limited access. Moreover, you can set up and manage a number of different websites at once with a website building application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver (as these apps use FTP to connect to the server) and upload your website files both when you create them and when you modify them. A crucial part of accomplishing these things is the option to create and manage your FTP accounts quickly and easily.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our web hosting plans
, offers a multifunction FTP Manager tool that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally only one click and all the accounts that you’ve got at a particular time will be shown alphabetically, so you can swiftly find the one that you need. You will also be able to see what folder a specific account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you wish to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP software app such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your computer – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually on your end. Also, you can see the full list of all the domains or subdomains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you’ll be able to make use of different options that are available in the FTP Manager section of our next-generation Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a new FTP account and select which directory it will have access to with just a few clicks through an intuitive interface. A list of all the accounts that you have set up will be available in the same section as well and, for your convenience, you can arrange them by access path or username in ascending or descending order, so you will be able to effortlessly locate the FTP account that you want. Changing the path for an active FTP account is as simple as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas deleting an account or changing its password requires one single mouse click too. With the FTP Manager, you can also use config files for widely used desktop FTP software applications such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
