Find out what an FTP Manager is actually and why it’s useful to have one when building a website.
Connecting to your web connect via FTP will be fast and easy. You will be able to upload & download files and directories with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Apart from managing the whole content, you can also give other persons access to a given part of your account without granting them access to the Control Panel where they can see personal emails or other information they shouldn’t. This can be done by creating a different FTP account that they can use to connect only to one single folder in the web hosting account. Such an option is quite useful if you use several web developers or if you use an app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver to manage a number of sites at once, as you can create a different FTP account for each person or each site. In this case, it’s vital to be able to administer your FTP accounts with no effort.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all our shared hosting
, offers a multi-feature FTP Manager that will grant you complete control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Setting up or deleting an account takes literally just a single click and all the accounts that you have at a given time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can swiftly locate the one that you need. You will also be able to see what directory a particular account can access and by clicking it, you can change it. If you would like to access your web 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 run it on your personal computer – the account in question will be set up without you needing to do anything manually yourself. Additionally, you can view the complete list of all the domains or subdomains which you’re able to use.

In case you’ve set up many accounts, you’ll be able to administer them with ease, as you can sort them alphabetically in descending or ascending order either by username or by access path.
