Uncover what an FTP Manager is and why it’s helpful to have one when building a website.
Accessing your web connect via FTP will be quick and easy. You’ll be able to upload/download files & directories with just a few clicks. Besides managing the whole content, you can also offer other users access to a given section of your hosting account without granting them access to the Control Panel where they can view personal e-mails or other info they are not supposed to. This can be done by setting up a different FTP account that they can use to connect only to one directory within the hosting account. Such a feature is exceptionally useful in case you use several web designers or if you rely on a web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage to manage a number of Internet sites simultaneously, 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 hassles.
FTP Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each of our Linux shared web hosting
, offers a multifunction FTP Manager tool that will give you full control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally only one single click of the mouse and all the accounts that you have at any particular moment will be displayed alphabetically, so you can effortlessly locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what folder an account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. If you want to connect to your hosting space using an FTP client app like Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and run it on your personal computer – the account in question will be configured without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Also, you can see the full list of all the domains or subdomains that you’re able to use.
