Creating An Additional FTP Account


If you wish to add another FTP account, start by clicking on the FTP Accounts icon under the files section of your cPanel dashboard.

Create a username and password for this FTP account. The username will take the format of an email address (unlike SFTP where just the username is entered, for standard FTP accounts the full address is used)

After putting your username and password into the designated areas, you’ll want to erase your login information from the directory box so it looks like this:

If you leave your login information in the directory box ( /login ), this FTP account will only have access to the /login directory, not the entire public_html directory.

After deleting your login information from the directory box, click Create FTP Account.
