The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a certain directory is to set up an FTP account and to specify content access restrictions in regards to your web hosting space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other content or any personal data in your hosting account. You can also create separate FTP accounts to maintain a number of sites built with a desktop web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be launched online and then modified using an FTP account that has access to its very own domain name folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible on the condition that you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
