Introduction

document is highly confidential.




Welcome to HostingDirector
HostingDirector site level management enables the user to control his/her own
dedicated environment on a server, in which the Website can be built and
administrated.
All Website administration tasks are done via a user-friendly and intuitive
environment that enables even an inexperienced site owner to manage his/her
site without resorting to complex command line instructions.
For example, adding/modifying email and FTP accounts is achieved through a
simple wizard that is implemented as a sequence of dialog boxes which the user
can move forwards and backwards through, filling in the details required.
Another unique feature of the HostingDirector site is the utilization of ValueApps:
Third party applications that can be easily installed and managed by site owners.
These help files appeal to a range of readers and assume limited experience with
Website functionality.

VDS User Guide version 3.8



                              Email/FTP Tab
Email and FTP accounts are an integral part of any Website. With
HostingDirector defining such accounts is a simple and secure process. To add
email/FTP accounts do the following:
  1. Click on the Email/FTP tab.

     2. Click on the New Email/FTP button.


     3. You will be prompted to a wizard screen in which you should enter the
        following:
            a. User name: This will become the first part of the email. In our
               example we enter jsmith making the complete email address
               jsmith@domain_name.com.
            b. Account Description: A one-line description for the user name.
            c. Select Enable Administrator Privileges to File System checkbox
               if this is the email account of VDS (Website account)
               owner/administrator.
               Typically, an added user that has an FTP service enabled also
               receives permissions to personal FTP directory. During FTP login
               to the VDS, the user will be directed to his/her own directory and
               will not be able to change to another FTP user directory. A user
               with administrator privileges will be directed to the FTP root of the
               Website account, and will have read permissions on all directories
               and files under the Website account. Administrator Privileges to File
               System also grants NTFS security permissions over the file system.
            d. FrontPage/Share Point Extensions: Checkbox shall appear only
               if the SharePoint or FrontPage extensions ValueApp has been
               added. Selecting this checkbox enables the email/FTP account
               owner to connect to the account's Website via FrontPage2002 or
               SharePoint.
            e. Select the Enable Mail checkbox to activate the email account.
               In the Mail Quota field, enter the amount of MB that will be
               allocated to this account.
               Select the Enable FTP checkbox to activate the FTP account.
               Entering zero in quota files grants an unlimited quota to account.
            f. In the FTP Quota field, enter the amount of MB that will be
               allocated to this account.
               Finally, enter the path of this account or leave it with the default.

            g. Enter password for the account and then retype password.
               Click Finish.
