I have a windows host right now.
I have a few client websites in the account (virtual domains).
One of the client wants to access FTP and upload files by himself.
But I have a problem, because, if I give him the FTP login, he will be able to access all my client websites.

I asked my host, they said there is no way I can give him his separate FTP login for his own domain, because that's how Windows host is like.

Is that true?

Another thing is that I cannot password protect the folder.
Again, my host told me that is normal for Windows service.

Please validate this for me.

Thank you.

It really depends on your system. Our control panel doesnt support multiple ftp accounts as of yet (scheduled feature in next release) - however, you can certainly create these accounts manually in w2k3 - so, I imagine your host just doesnt want to do this (which isnt unusual) - maybe try asking them when this feature will be supported? As for password protecting direcories - yes, this can be done on windows - however, it tyocally isnt done with the tradiitional linux .htaccess type of solution.

password protect folder

- create a user account "test" and on the folder in NTFS permissions remove IUSER and add "TEST"

Also remove anonymous from directory security in IIS services tool on that folder. "right click folder in IIS then properties"

As above post probably host not wanting to do it. Simple but guess they have there reasons.

This should work...

Hope this helps.
