How to stop web, FTP or mail services in your Hosting

In your SW Hosting Hosting, you can choose to stop or start the FTP, Mail and Web services independently. This is useful if you want to do without these services during specific times.

To activate or deactivate the FTP/Web/Mail services, you have to follow the following steps:

  1. Access your SW Panel

  2. Access the Dashboard of the Hosting or service in which you want to deactivate the services. To do this, we recommend you use the search engine at the top of the screen:

    - Captura 1

  3. Next, you must go to the section of Stop / Start services:

    - Captura 2

  4. From this section you can select to stop all services or stop each of the previously mentioned services individually. To do this, select the "check" for each of the services you want to stop:

    - Captura 3

  5. When you want to stop any of the services, you will be shown a warning box indicating that stopping a running service implies that all processes related to this service stop working, which may cause drops and data loss:

    - Captura 4

  6. To finish, select Yes, run action. From this moment, the service you have selected will no longer be active. In case of having selected the web service, the web page associated with the Hosting will be shown in white.

  7. To start the disabled services again, you must follow the same process but in reverse, that is, instead of unchecking the check, mark it:

    - Captura 5

⚠ Remember that stopping a service does not imply stopping the service associated with it, that is, stopping, for example, the web service, does not imply stopping the Apache2 service.
