Country Access blocks or allows access to your FTP site by country or region of the world. This is based on a commercial database of worldwide IP addresses that is updated weekly and is 99.8% accurate on a country level. This provides excellent protection from foreign hackers attempting to gain access to your site.
- Limit access by Country
When enabled, only users from the allowed countries will be able to access the file transfer protocols that are active on the site. You can disable this temporarily if you wish, for troubleshooting purposes, without having to clear the list of allowed countries under the next setting.
- Allowed countries
These are the only countries from which end users can access your FTP site, once the above toggle is enabled. To edit this list click inside this field and choose additional countries from the list. You can either scroll through the list or start typing the name of a particular country in order to find it. The map to the right shows graphically which countries are allowed (in green) and which countries are dis-allowed (in red).
