What's an FTP Manager? How much handy is it with regard to running a web site?
Accessing your website content via FTP will be quick and easy. You will be able to upload and download files/directories with only a couple of mouse clicks. Besides administering the whole content, you can also offer other people access to a particular section of your web hosting account without offering them access to the Control Panel where they can see private e-mails or other sensitive information they are not supposed to. You can do this by setting up a separate FTP account that they can make use of to connect only to one single folder in the web hosting account. Such an option is truly handy in case you use different web designers or if you rely on a web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage to manage multiple websites at the same time, as you can create a different FTP account for each person or each website. In this case, it’s essential to be able to administer your FTP accounts easily.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
When you you open a shared hosting account with us, you will be given access to the powerful FTP Manager tool, that’s a part of our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The tool offers several different options, aside from the ability to set up or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to view the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access another directory. Auto-config files are available for download as well, so you will not have to configure anything manually – you can simply download the given file for Core FTP, FileZilla or CyberDuck and install it on your computer system. To make the management easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve set up in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the username or the access path.
