Is there such an option?

If no then I seriously considering to switch to another host with this option.

Thank you.

What about login with email?
You don't have to build phone verification system.

If you will build option to login with email and block the ability to login without email(Including FTP) then this will be enough.

In this setup - If I enabled phone verification for my gmail/any other mail server that have phone verification system and I login to the server with this email then technically I login to the server with phone verification.

So this is good idea I think. Instead of building phone verification, just make ability to login ONLY with the email.

or is it already exists?
if yes then I would love an explanation of how to do it.
if no then I strongly recommend to make such an option

We are not currently offering such email verification option.

I will however escalate your suggestion to my superiors.

Thank you.
Please let me know if my suggestion was accepted. And If yes then how long will it will take until such option will be exists.

I have no problem being beta user who uses this option.

Email verification link is the solution for FTP login.
About FTP - it can work this way:
When user login with his username & password (Through FTP client) then the server will send verification link to the user email. user must click on that verification link in order to be able to modify and open files in the ftp login session.
Without the verification link (and only with correct user & pass) the user can only see his domain folders but cannot access to the folders and change anything else.


That verification link will be valid until the user closed the ftp login session( I hope this is how I should write this in English) or X time has been passed.

Hello,

I am afraid that we can not offer such time frame or whether such a feature will be implemented at all. It is most likely that such feature will not be accepted as it is quite heavy and difficult for regular users to complete just to upload several files for their website.
I would rather suggest you to set stronger password for your FTP account and scan your computer for for trojan horses and key loggers. If these are completed there should be no troubles for you to use FTP without troubles.
In case you would like to inquire about something else in the future, please let us know.

Thanks for the reply.
"It is most likely that such feature will not be accepted as it is quite heavy and difficult for regular users to complete just to upload several files for their website. "
part of the idea is that you don't have to enable this feature if you don't want it. as same with Phone verification in gmail for example. in gmail you can disable/enable the Phone verification...

I do not think that because not everyone wants it then you should not develop it.

I'm sure there are others who would be happy for this feature and maybe even want to pay for it.
But if you will sell it (after the decision to develop it) then please give it to me free because I suggested the idea :)


About my side, I'm not worried. I do not store my passwords on my computer and not using windows for logins..
I worry about your side (Because I'm not really familiar with this server) - do you do everything to secure your server?

Hello,

Thank you for understanding this matter.
Like I have informed you such a service will most likely not be enabled on our servers.
Even if we decide to implement such service it will not be paid one.
