How to create a FTP account

You can use your cPanel username and password to access all folders and files via FTP. However, if you want to create an FTP user account for a specific folder or you don't want to allow access to your root files then you can create a separate FTP Account. 

1. Log into your cPanel account.

2. In the "Files" section, click on "FTP Accounts" Icon 


3. Under "Add FTP Account" text, fill in the following details: 

  • Login: FTP Username like "newuser" (without the quotes and spaces)
  • Password: (Enter new FTP Password or generate a new password by clicking on the "Password Generator" button)
  • Directory: If you want to give access to the entire /public_html folder, enter "public_html" or change folder path to a different path like "public_html/newuser" and your FTP user will be granted access to only the "newuser" folder. Your FTP user will also be unable to access folders outside of the "public_html/newuser" folder.
  • Quota: Specify the quota in numerical words or select "unlimited".

4. Click on the "Create FTP Account" button.
