All about MultiFTP for Plan line

OVH offers 3 types of FTP space:

  • private FTP. Every hosting service in OVH has this type of FTP space, starting form 1MB (MailPlan) to 5GB (XXLPlan). It's used to update websites and it's write/read space, that requires logging in (FTP login and password)

  • MultiFTP. Option available for only PLAN line. It allows creating multiple private FTP spaces where each manager a part of website hosting. In this way you may share your server with others or provide hosting services yourself.
A person who gets access to his/her FTP space will be able to edit her data and won't be able to access other FTP accounts.

  • Anonymous FTP. It's special offer for PLAN line, equal in size with web space.

If you'd like to share a part of your service with another person, you may use our Multi-FTP option.
For example, you add some pictures to the gallery and the other person may add some more via FTP.

If you'd like to host several websites on your hosting use the Multi-domain option. Unfortunately, you cannot divide disk space, so it's up to you to make sure the other person didn't use up all the space disk.
