Step 1: Login & Navigate to FTP Accounts

Log in to your cPanel account and click on the FTP Accounts icon under the Files tab.

Step 2: Create an FTP account

Under Add FTP Account enter the chosen username into the Login text box and a password into the Password text box and then re-type the password into the Password (Again) text box.


Step 3:  Best Practice : Use The Password Generator

You can use the Password Generator to generate a strong secure password for your FTP account. Once you have clicked on Generate Password, check the box that says I have copied this password in a safe place, and then click on Use Password.

Step 4:  Create an FTP Account

Note: The Directory entry will specify the top level of directory access that will be allowed for the FTP account.

The Directory for the FTP account will be automatically generated for you. Set the disk space Quota for the FTP account then click on Create FTP Account.
