Do you log FTP activity with FTP log file

All FTP activity on shared web hosting servers is logged via FTP log file. So all FTP actions like uploading, changing, deleting files and folders is monitored and recorded in the web hosting server system logs. Server FTP log files are generally kept for internal use only and the web hosting customer cannot see them.

FTP logs are used only by the QHoster's server system administrators. In some cases FTP log information can be disclosed to the hosting account owner and authorities when necessary.
