    One of the domains i have hosted with godaddy has plenty of extra free space and monthly bandwidth...I have plenty of friends that need a decent host for pics/files/etc. so i wouldn't mind providing that for them. Is there a way I can create a separate username/password for uploads only so they can connect to my ftp site? I have never tried this with godaddy but have done it plenty on a private (hosting from home) FTP site

    is this possible with godaddy? i looked around on their site for awhile and couldn't find any settings that look like they relate to this and also couldn't find anything on google that was related - my hosting and domain is through godaddy

    thanks

    Does godaddy have some kind of control panel (Cpanel/Direct Admin/Plesk/Ensim...)? You usually create ftp accounts from there.

    its possible that i'm just missing it (hopefully), but in the hosting control panel (where i assume it would be) the only FTP related item is the "FTP Client" which is just a way to upload if you don't have your own ftp client

    otherwise i'm not seeing anything

    so far it has been working great, their ftp site is pretty quick for uploads

    but the current site i have isn't really file-heavy

    Godaddy is usually good speed wise, but it sucks for options and support. What i recommend is that you install perhaps something like nGallery. Would that be a little better for you? That way you can create more users and such. Really depends on what plan type you have with them though, and what your capabilities are.
