220.127.116.11. Temporary FTP access to a specific directory
Attention!It is unsafe to restrict access in this way. If the directory that is accessed via FTP is also available via HTTP, you can upload a script to it via FTP and execute it via HTTP - in this case, the restriction of the FTP root directory will not apply. This feature should only be used as a convenience. Complete isolation can only be achieved by placing the site in a separate hosting account.
Sometimes it may be necessary to provide a third party (for example, a website developer or a third-party specialized specialist) with temporary access not to the entire contents of the hosting account, but only to a specific directory (for example, the directory of a specific site or subdomain, without access to neighboring sites of the hosting account ).
- Create new FTP user and specify the path to the desired directory in its advanced settings:
- For access to directories of the main domain and subdomains specify only the name of the site (for example,
- For access only to the directory of the main domain specify the name of the site and a subdirectory separated by a slash
- For access only to the directory of a specific domain specify the name of the site and the name of the subdomain separated by a slash (for example,
- Credentials for connection provide this FTP user (host, login and password) to the person for whom access was created.
- If FTP access restriction is enabled, add the IP of the person to be granted access to list of allowed.
With connection data, a third party will be able to connect via FTP using any FTP client, for example FileZilla, WinSCP or Total Commander.
- If FTP access restriction is enabled, remove the IP of the person who was granted access from list of allowed... If access restriction is disabled, it is recommended to enable it.
