  • 498

An FTP account is basically used to upload / manage your files on your web site. By, default an ftp account is created automatically when you sign up for hosting or create an account for a user. You can give different people access to modify certain files and not others by giving permissions to only edit or access a particular directory. You must create an FTP account for the user to do so. To create an FTP account, please do the following:

1. Click FTP Manager
2. Click FTP Accounts
3. Click Add FTP Account
4. To the right of “Login:” Type the name of the ftp user. Please note, the full ftp user name will be “[email protected]
To the right of “Password:”, Please provide a password which will be used to access this ftp account.
5. To the right of “Quota“, please provide the amount of space you would like the user to have. Please note, If you leave at unlimited , the user will have ability to only use upto the total amount of space for your account.
6. To the right of “Director/home/user/public_html“, Please provide a directory for which you would like the user to access to. If you leave it blank, the user will have access to full “Public_HTML” directory.
7. Click Create

You have now just set up an FTP account
