Here's a tutorial for CHMODing (changing file or folder permissions) through FTP:

Thanks for the reply.

Is there a way for me to compare the file transfer speeds of both servers? And will I be able to exceed the daily data transfer limit when needed occasionally after logging is enabled?

Currently, I'm using my FreePgs account for file hosting, and have turned off PHP months ago. But for the past few days, I have been thinking of using PHP to limit file download; I would like to know if turning it on would, in any way, affect its performance as a file host (file access speed, download speed etc.). And would it be acceptable if I exceed the daily data transfer limit for a few days, but compensate it by transferring lesser data on the following days? And, would I get a notification or an immediate suspension if I do exceed the limit?

I remember the admin had mentioned that he removed BWMon because it had a notable negative impact on server performance. Is there any other way which I could track the amount of data transfer in my account per day?

And if I'm not mistaken, existing FreePgs accounts can be moved into a Plesk server upon request. So, what are the advantages of doing so?

I have just seen this thread (3 posts at this point in time):

So, would it be correct to say that it would be better to transfer my account into a Plesk server for the purpose of file hosting?

Isn't cURL installed on this server? You can use that to replace the fsockopen function.

And mind you, fsockopen is NOT "the only functionality worth a funk on this service". Try finding a web host that provides web hosting for a one-time payment less than $10 and giving out gigs of data transfer PER DAY for the past few years. I bet you can't find two.

I wouldn't even call your login script a "site", please.
