The easiest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a certain directory is to create an FTP account and to specify website content access limits with regard to your web space. In case you use the services of a web developer, for example, they will not be able to access any other files or any sensitive data in your hosting account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to manage different sites built with a desktop web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each website can be published online and subsequently edited using an FTP account with access to its own website folder on the server. All these things will be possible provided that you’re able to create and manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
