Enable Anonymous FTP Access
If you host a site on a dedicated IP address, you can set up a directory within the site, where other users will be able to anonymously download or upload files through FTP. Once anonymous FTP is enabled, the users will be able to log in to the ftp://ftp.your-domain.com with the "anonymous" login name and any password.
To allow anonymous FTP access:
- Go to Domains > domain name > Anonymous FTP.
- To activate anonymous FTP service, click Switch On.
- To set up a welcoming message to be displayed when users log in to FTP site, select the Display login message check box and type the message text in the input field as desired.
Note that not all FTP clients display welcoming messages.
- To allow visitors to upload files to the
/incomingdirectory, select the Allow uploading to incoming directory check box.
- To allow users to create subdirectories in the
/incomingdirectory, select the Allow creation of directories in the incoming directory check box.
- To allow downloading files from the
/incomingdirectory, select the Allow downloading from the incoming directory check box.
- To limit the amount of disk space that can be occupied by uploaded files, clear the Unlimited check box corresponding to the Limit disk space in the incoming directory option, and specify the amount in kilobytes.
This is the hard quota: the users will not be able to add more files to the directory when the limit is reached.
- To limit the number of simultaneous connections to the anonymous FTP server, clear the Unlimited check box corresponding to theLimit number of simultaneous connections option and specify the number of allowed connections.
- To limit the bandwidth for anonymous FTP connections, clear theUnlimited check box corresponding to the Limit download bandwidth for this virtual FTP domain option and enter the maximum bandwidth in kilobytes per second.
