The easiest way to grant a third-party access to the files in a given directory is to set up an FTP account and to specify content access limits with regard to your web hosting space. In case you use the services of a web designer, for instance, they won’t be able to access any other files or any sensitive data in your web hosting account. You can also create multiple FTP accounts to maintain a number of Internet sites built with a desktop web design app such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the Internet and then modified using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.
