I asked the support team this question, but it seems it is not possible. However, I want to ask others if there is some other way to do this.

One of my customer needs a solution so that FTP uploading / downloading is restricted to specific IPs / ranges and if possible to specific file types. He also wants to restrict HTTP access to these areas to specific IPs / ranges.

In case this is not possible with hosting on Windows reseller account, then the customer is willing to consider Linux hosting.

Thanks in advance.

.htaccess mods in Linux can restrict http access to a specific IPs or subnets. A good place to start reading is http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/htaccess.shtml

i can't think of any way to do that with ftp (except within ftp server software). you can of course restrict http access to http pages via code. check the cgi variable of the visitor and match it against an allowed list with some regex and forward to a no permission page if they aren't on it. that's assuming everyone that's allowed access are using a static ip and are showing it properly through their browser.

You can do it through IISRewrite for IIS and we will do it for ftp manually if you want to.
