Answers to frequently asked questions about using FTP / SMB storage
For what purposes and how can the storage be used?
The FTP / SMB storage service is primarily intended for storing backup copies of hosting and virtual server data. You can use any FTP / FTPS clients (for example, Filezilla, Total Commander, etc.) or CIFS / SMB (or example, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows FREE).
You can also use the storage as a mounted drive on the CIFS / SMB protocol, however, in this case, it should be noted that the SMB session to the storage can sometimes break off.
How safe is it to store data in storage?
Access to the repository is limited first of all by the IP address that you independently determine when ordering the service.
When using FTP access, it is recommended to use SSL / TLS over the FTP protocol, which will ensure the security of password transmission over the Internet.
The service also provides automatic protection against automatic brute-force attack.
I need access to the repository from several IP addresses, is it possible?
Yes, it is possible. Additional storage access addresses can be added in billing, in the account properties.
Where can I find the storage management user interface?
This service was originally targeted at advanced users and system administrators who independently manage data on the hosting. It does not have a "user" management interface, it is simply not needed.
After registering an account in hosting billing, credentials for accessing the repository will be available to you - host name, username and password. This data is enough to configure the FTP client or SMB / CIFS to work with the service.
