What's an FTP Manager? How much useful is it with regard to controlling a web site?
Connecting to your web connect via FTP will be fast and easy. You will be able to upload and download files/directories with only a couple of mouse clicks. Apart from administering the entire content, you can also give other individuals access to a specific section of your web hosting account without offering them access to the hosting Control Panel where they can see private emails or other sensitive information they are not supposed to. You can do this by setting up a different FTP account that they can use to access only one folder within the web hosting account. This feature is extremely useful in case you work with several web developers or if you rely on a web design tool like FrontPage or Dreamweaver to run multiple websites at the same time, as you can set up a separate FTP account for each site or each person. In this case, it’s crucial to be able to manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux shared hosting
, offers a multifunctional FTP Manager that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or deleting an account takes literally just one single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you’ve got at any particular moment will be displayed in alphabetical order, so you can easily locate the one that you need. You will also be able to see what folder an account can access and by clicking on it, you can change it. In case you wish to access your web space using an FTP program like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your PC – that account will be configured without you having to do anything manually yourself. What’s more, you can view a list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you won’t have any difficulties managing any part of your web presence in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server
from us and the FTP part makes no exception. With the FTP Manager, which is a part of our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll exert full control over your FTP accounts through a pretty intuitive graphical interface. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you’ll be able to accomplish more or less everything – to create or to remove an FTP account, to update its password, to change the directory that it can access or to make use of auto-configuration files for programs such as Core FTP and FileZilla. In case you have multiple accounts, you’ll be able to manage them with no effort, as you can arrange them alphabetically in descending or ascending order either by folder access path or by username.
