How to create an FTP Account in cPanel?

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:

Log in: 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“.
