Discover what an FTP Manager is and why it’s helpful to have one when setting up a site.
You can make use of different FTP accounts to manage your content if you’ve got a number of websites within the very same hosting account. You can grant different persons access only to particular folders, for instance – web developers or IT experts from the company, and be sure that they will not be able to connect to any other directories or anything else in the website hosting account, as the FTP accounts have restricted access. In addition, you can set up and administer a number of different sites simultaneously using a website building app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver (since these apps make use of FTP to make a connection to the server) and publish the website files both when you create them and when you modify them. An important part of doing these things is the option to set up and manage your FTP accounts quickly and easily.

plans include a function-loaded, yet user-friendly FTP Manager tool, which will enable you to manage all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up seamlessly. The tool is part of our next-gen Hepsia hosting Control Panel and besides creating and deleting accounts, you will be able to change the password associated with any existing account with just 2 clicks. You can modify the level of access for any given FTP account just as easily – you will just have to click on the access path associated with the account and then to pick the new folder. What’s more, you can download an auto-config file for several FTP software apps and configure any of the FTP accounts on your personal computer by simply installing the file in question.

Changing the path for an existing FTP account is as easy as clicking on it and choosing the new path, whereas removing an account or changing its password requires one click of the mouse as well. Using the FTP Manager, you can also make use of configuration files for popular desktop FTP apps such as CyberDuck and FileZilla.
