    if an affiliate program wants me to send them an ftp location with sername and password, so I can get their feed, what am i supposed to do? I do not want to give my hosting one with all my domains on, as its obviously a security risk

    is there companies that do this? or can i get it as part of my hosting,? or what??
    or am i missing something? and having a stupid day>

    I wouldn't worry about giving them your FTP. Have never had a problem with it. And if you do have a problem with it, your log files will give you any info you need to take legal action.

    Tamalyn - You can always change your password once they are done. Or ask if they would zip it to you instead.

    Make a folder just for them and assign write only permissions to the folder. You can make them their own ftp username and their own password. Make sure it's a good one.

    It's no big deal.

    most web hosting companies have some sort control panel where you can usually set up ftp accounts and also what permissions to give them. Follow Zoe's advice, creat a separate folder and only let them ftp to that folder.
