The easiest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a certain folder is to create an FTP account and to put website content access limits regarding your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they will not acquire access to any other content or any private details in your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to manage different websites created with a desktop web design application like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be uploaded and subsequently modified using an FTP account with access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts effortlessly.
