Users whose account plans include Multiple FTP accounts can setup
ftp access for users through the FTP Feature inside your Control
Panel. From inside the FTP feature, click on FTP Accounts
and add a username and password for the user that you are granting
ftp access. The user then can access your account utilizing the
same instructions you received with your welcome email.
Virtual domain account users whose plans include Anonymous FTP can
allow anonymous FTP access to visitors wishing to download or upload
files to your web site as if you were running your own FTP server.
You can enable (and disable) ANON FTP access within the FTP Feature
inside your Control Panel.
ANONYMOUS FTP WARNINGS
Anonymous FTP will grant any and all users the ability to access
your "upload" directory, or any directory on your domain that has
been set for "public" read/write permissions. Anonymous users will
have access to upload or download files to and from your domain.
You must set the appropriate permissions for your directories to
restrict anonymous FTP access. This is needed to ensure that anonymous
users will not be able to access any existing files or directories.
You can inhibit access to specific files and directories using the
File Manager by disabling public read and/or write access to the
files or folders you don't want people to see (i.e.. cgi-local).
As the account owner, you are responsible for any and all files
that are stored on your domain. This would include files that were
uploaded by you as well as by anonymous FTP users. With the use
of anonymous FTP, your site is susceptible of becoming a "warez"
site. Typically, these are sites that are used by "hackers" to trade
(upload/download) illegally pirated copies of software programs
with one another. As the account owner, the complete content of
your account is your responsibility. If your site becomes a trading
post for "warez" programs, you may face legal action that can be
taken against you by the programmers/software companies of the copyrighted
software in addition to your account being deleted from our servers.
Please refer to our Usage
and Policies section for more information.
Any and all FTP download transfers, anonymous FTP included, will
be used in the calculation of the total data transfer for your account.
If this total data transfer amount exceeds the limit that is set
for your plan, you will be responsible for any and all overage charges
that occur. Please Note: There will be NO exceptions made for these
overage charges. Once anonymous FTP has been enabled, it will be
your responsibility to monitor the anonymous FTP activity for your

sure you keep track of your disk space usage via your Control Panel.
Do not allow your disk space usage to get too close to your maximum
disk space allocation or you may experience problems accessing your
site via FrontPage and/or be unable to upload or modify files.
Once you enable ANON FTP in your Control Panel, files can be accessed
anonymously via an FTP client.

your domain name as the FTP hostname, username of anonymous and
password of guest.
