How o create a FTP account?

In order to add a new FTP account Click on the FTP Accounts menu in the Files section

In the new opened window you will need to fill in the FTP account information in each field:

- Login - enter the desired username for your FTP account. It will be combined with your main domain name to create the full username (ex. [email protected])
- Password - enter a strong and secure password in this field for your FTP account. You can use Password Generator for this option.
- Password (again) - enter the same password here to confirm the spelling.
- Strength (Why?) - this field informs you how secure your password is.
- Directory - when you create an FTP account, it is limited to the directory you indicate here. cPanel will auto-fill an assumed directory based on the FTP username. You can erase everything and add a new path.
- Quota: you can limit the amount of bandwidth an FTP user can use here or set it to Unlimited.
