You can use separate FTP accounts to administer your website content in case you’ve got a number of sites within the exact same website hosting account. You can give different persons access only to particular folders, for instance – web developers or IT experts from the company, and rest assured that they won’t be able to connect to any other directories or anything else in the hosting account, since the FTP accounts have restricted access. Also, you can set up and administer several different websites at the same time using a web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver (as these applications make use of FTP to make a connection to the web server) and upload your site files both when you create them and when you update them. A vital part of doing these things is the option to create and manage your FTP accounts swiftly and easily.
FTP Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud web hosting packages
, offers a multi-feature FTP Manager tool that will grant you full control over all FTP accounts within your hosting account. Setting up or removing an account takes literally only one mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any particular time will be displayed alphabetically, so you can swiftly locate the one that you want.
