What is anonymous FTP and how do I enable it?

Answer

Anonymous FTP allows others to upload to your FTP space without allowing them access to the files that make up your site. By default, each domain account comes with anonymous FTP capabilities. By default, however, this option is not turned on. To install AnonFTP for your domain:

Open a support ticket requesting a dedicated IP address for your account. This change must be made before you continue with these instructions.

Go to your control panel at http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel. Click the 'Ftp Manager' icon under 'Site Management'. On the next page click the "Anonymous FTP Controls" link. Place a check mark in the boxes next to:

Allow anonymous access to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com

and

Allow anonymous upload to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com/incoming

Your users can then FTP into your domain using a username of anonymous and their email address and upload or download files.
