How do I create an FTP Account?

It's easy to create FTP accounts in your cPanel.

  1. Go to the cPanel home page.
  2. Go to FTP Accounts in the Files section.
  1. Under Add FTP Account, input a username for the new login
  2. Select the site you want to create the account for
  3. Input a password in both text boxes
    1. Use the Generate password button for a strong one to be created automatically for you.
  4. Choose the directory this account can connect to (leaving this blank will enable access to the root folder and every directory on the site)
  5. If you want to limit the amount of data transferred, input that into the quota box.
  6. Click Create Account

It should now appear at the bottom under the FTP Accounts section.
