You can use multiple FTP accounts to manage your web content if you’ve got several Internet sites within one and the same web hosting account. You can grant different individuals access only to certain folders, for instance – web developers or IT experts from the company, and rest assured that they won’t be able to access any other directories or anything else within the website hosting account, since the FTP accounts have limited access. What’s more, you can set up and administer a number of different sites simultaneously using a website building app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver (as these applications make use of FTP to establish a connection to the web server) and publish the website files both when you create them and when you modify them. An essential part of accomplishing these tasks is the ability to set up and manage your FTP accounts quickly and effortlessly.
FTP Manager in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux shared hosting service
, offers a multifunction FTP Manager that will give you complete control over all FTP accounts within your web hosting account.
