What's an FTP Manager? How much helpful is it when you are handling an Internet site?
You can make use of separate FTP accounts to administer your content if you’ve got a number of sites in the exact same hosting account. You can grant different people access only to particular folders, for example – web designers or IT professionals from the company, and be sure that they will not be able to connect to any other files or anything else within the hosting account, since the FTP accounts have limited access. Also, you can create and manage a number of different sites simultaneously using a web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage (as these applications make use of FTP to access the server) and publish your website files both when you create them and when you edit them. A crucial part of accomplishing these tasks is the option to set up and administer your FTP accounts swiftly and easily.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux shared web hosting packages
, offers a multi-feature FTP Manager that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account requires literally only a click and all the accounts that you have at any particular moment will be shown alphabetically, so you can quickly locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what folder a specific account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you want to access your web space using an FTP client 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 – the account in question will be set up without you needing to do anything manually on your end. In addition, you can view the complete list of all the domains or subdomains which you’re able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts are managed via the intuitive, in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all the things associated with them, so you can manage all the accounts swiftly and easily. It will take one mouse click to create a brand new account, to remove an existing one or simply to change its password. You can also view the full list of all your FTP accounts in this section of the Control Panel and, for convenience’s sake, you can sort them in alphabetical order – ascending or descending, either by their access path or by username. Modifying the path for an account is also rather easy – you’ll just have to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up that will appear, so you won’t need to create a brand new FTP account in case you simply need to define what web files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-configuration files for commonly used FTP software apps such as FileZilla and Core FTP.
