How to Create Additional FTP Accounts

Let's have a look at how to create additional FTP accounts.

FTP allows you to access your files through a 3rd party program such as FilzeZilla

This tutorial will assume that you are logged into your cPanel.

Once logged into your cPanel, scroll to the section Files, and click on the icon named FTP Accounts.

 

If you scroll down on the page you will see a list of the FTP accounts you already have. Most were created when your hosting account was setup.

Scroll up to the section called Add FTP Account. In the first box enter a Login name. Then enter a password twice, in the next two boxes.

In the next box, marked Directory, click on the icon and it will give you the Directory you are creating the FTP account for. NOTE: If it should say "public_html/example" in this box,

the user of this account will only have access to the "/example" directory, and all folders under it. To give them full access, remove everything up to the slash...

so that it reads "public_html/" This will allow them full access. In the next box you can give a quota limit or not on this FTP account. If you choose not to limit the account, enter

Unlimited in the box. Then click the Create button.

This will take you to the confirmation screen, with all the account information listed. Click the Go Back button.

Your new FTP Account will now be listed on the main page.
