Virtual FTP

Only for Unix-based accounts

Virtual FTP provides ampler possibilities than FTP sub-accounts. You can give your authorized Virtual FTP users access to more than one directory and specify a different set of permissions for each directory. Virtual FTP users log right into your root, but can enter only those directories you allow them to enter.

To provide Virtual FTP Access to a certain domain, do the following:

  1. If you are using a dedicated IP, skip this step. Otherwise, switch to dedicated IP.
  2. Select FTP in FTP/User Account menu.
  3. Enable FTP for this domain:

  4. If you have several domains, choose the one to enable virtual FTP for.
  5. Click the confirmation link to agree with the charges.
  6. Fill the form that appears:

  7. Create a new Virtual FTP User by going to the FTP Host page and clicking Add for Virtual ftp-users

  8. Click the Add icon for Virtual FTP Directories and enter the name for the new Virtual FTP Directory:

    End it with a slash, for example: Dir1/. The location must be specified relative to root.

    To create a virtual FTP directory inside a different directory, include the path, for example, UserDirs/Dir1/.

    On the same page, specify permissions to this directory:

  9. Click the Edit icon next to the directory you have just created. If you haven't granted the same permissions to all your Virtual FTP Users, you can specify permissions for each of them individually:

    If you have chosen to grant the same permissions to all users, you can skip this step.
