What's an FTP Manager? How much efficient is it with regard to taking care of a site?
Accessing your web connect via FTP will be quick and easy. You will be able to upload & download files & directories with only a few clicks of the mouse. Besides managing the whole content, you can also offer other people access to a particular section of your web hosting account without providing them with access to the hosting Control Panel where they can find personal e-mails or other sensitive data they are not supposed to. This can be done by setting up a different FTP account that they can make use of to access only one single folder in the web hosting account. Such a feature is especially useful in case you work with several web designers or in case you rely on an application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage to administer a number of websites simultaneously, since you can create a separate FTP account for each website or each person. In this case, it is vital to be able to manage your FTP accounts without any effort.
FTP Manager in Web Hosting
If you open a web hosting
account with our company, you will receive access to the powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s an integral part of our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool includes a number of different options, aside from the possibility to set up or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path associated with each account and by clicking on it, you can alter it so that the account in question will access a separate directory. Downloadable auto-configuration files are available as well, so you won’t need to set up anything manually – you can just download the specific file for Core FTP, CyberDuck or FileZilla and run it on your computer. To make the management itself simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the accounts that you have set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you open a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you will be able to use a number of features that are accessible in the FTP Manager section of our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can set up a brand new FTP account and choose which directory it will have access to with only a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface. A list of all the FTP accounts that you have will be displayed in the same section too and, for the sake of convenience, you can sort them by access path or username in descending or ascending order, so you will be able to quickly find the account that you need. Changing the path for an active account is as easy as clicking on it and selecting the new path, whereas deleting an account or editing its password requires one single click of the mouse too. With the FTP Manager, you can also use configuration files for commonly used desktop FTP client programs such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
