File Transfer Protocol Setup

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, a method of managing the files associated with your website. cPanel comes complete with an FTP server that is pre-configured and easy to use.

If you are the website owner, your FTP access should already be configured. You can log in via FTPusing your cPanel account username and password.

You can also set up FTP accounts for other users. First, you need to create a user's account. Then, the user will be able to log into your website using an FTP client such as FileZilla or Cyberduck.

PICK Important: When a user tries to log into the FTP site using a client, he or she will need to format the username as where represents your domain name. Requiring that the login information be entered in this way allows your server to have multiple FTP accounts across multiple websites.

When using FTP, we strongly recommend using an encryption scheme, such as FTPS, FTPES, or SFTP. (However, only the main cPanel account owner can use SFTP).
