The easiest way to give a third-party access to the files in a given directory is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access limits in regards to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not be provided with access to any other content or any personal data in your web hosting account. You can also set up separate FTP accounts to manage different Internet sites created with a desktop web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each site can be launched online and then updated using an FTP account that has access to its own website folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our Linux web hosting packages
, offers a feature-packed FTP Manager tool that will give you full control over all FTP accounts in your hosting account. Creating or removing an account takes literally just one single mouse click and all the accounts that you have at any given time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can swiftly find the one that you want. You will also be able to check what directory an account can connect to and by clicking on it, you can change it. If you would like to connect to your web hosting space using an FTP client app such as Core FTP or FileZilla, you can download an auto-config file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – the account in question will be configured without you having to do anything manually on your end. Also, you can see the complete list of all the domains or sub-domains which you are able to use.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server

Changing the path for an active account is as simple as clicking on it and selecting the new path, while removing an account or changing its password requires one single click of the mouse too. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of configuration files for commonly used desktop software programs like FileZilla and CyberDuck.
