You can always tell how much FTP space you have used and bandwidth consumption from within the control-panel. There is a function which will report, in real-time, the total amount of FTP space used by your site. This information is presented in “tree” form, showing all folders and files and their size. If you want to know how much bandwidth your site has consumed, you can always verify this from within the control-panel as well. Once you have either your total FTP space or bandwidth consumption, then by knowing what plan you have, you can determine if you are over the limits.
Hosting 4 Less bills on either a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis. Depending upon the plan you choose will depend on how much this bill is per period.

NO! With our FTP File Hosting service their is no need to download any special software. You can drag and drop files into and from your FTP site with programs such as Internet Explorer. Our FTP service supports any FTP clients you would like to use. In short, a FTP client is not required to utilize our FTP service. However, it is recommended that Macintosh users download an FTP program called Fetch that allows for full FTP capabilities on a Macintosh.
NO! With our FTP service each username and password combination you create is restricted to their own folder you assigned them. They do not know about any other folders. When they login the user is automatically put into their own directory. The master account does have the ability to see all of the other accounts allowing for full access to the FTP site. You also have the ability to share a directory with multiple people by simply giving out that username/password information to more than one user. If you have a group manager you also have the ability to create a group admin who will have access to multiple sub accounts without access to the main account.
Yes! With our file hosting all servers support SSL. You can use either “Auth SSL” or “Auth TLS” with our service. In order for the FTP to be encrypted you simply would need to use an FTP client that supports one of the two methods. Nearly all FTP clients support encryption now utilizing the SSL or TLS.
Our file hosting service comes with up to 100 sub FTP accounts. If you require more than 100 this is not a problem, you simply have to inform us of how many additional accounts you require. The sub FTP accounts are managed via an easy to use web-based control panel.
Yes! You can use your own domain name or a sub domain of another. With our file hosting service we give you a static ip# with your account so you can point any domain name you would like to the account. For example, you can create ftp.yourname.com and point it to the ip# we assign to you. Some customers even have us register a new domain name for them to use with the FTP account.
