Discover what an FTP Manager is and why it’s useful to have one when building a website.
Connecting to your web connect via FTP will be quick and easy. You’ll be able to upload & download files/directories with just a couple of mouse clicks. Aside from managing the entire content, you can also offer other users access to a particular section of your account without offering them access to the Control Panel where they can view personal e-mails or other sensitive information they shouldn’t. You can do this by creating a different FTP account that they can make use of to access only one single directory in the web hosting account. This feature is exceptionally useful in case you use different web designers or if you use an application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver to administer multiple websites at once, since you can set up a separate FTP account for each person or each website. In such a case, it’s crucial to be able to administer your FTP accounts effortlessly.
FTP Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you open a cloud hosting account with us, you will be given access to the really powerful FTP Manager tool, that is part of our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The tool includes several different options, besides the possibility to set up or delete FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking on it, you can change it so that the account will access another folder. Auto-config files are available for download as well, so you will not have to set up anything manually – you can just download the respective file for FileZilla, CyberDuck or Core FTP and run it on your computer. To make the management simpler, the FTP Manager will allow you to view all the FTP accounts that you have created in alphabetical order, based on either the access path or the username.
