The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the web files in a particular directory is to set up an FTP account and to set content access restrictions concerning your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t be given access to any other files or any sensitive information within your web hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to run different websites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each website can be published on the web and subsequently updated using an FTP account with access to its own domain folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you’re able to create and administer your FTP accounts without effort.
