How to use FTP
You can access your main FTP account:
1. Using cPanel account login details (default FTP account)
2. Can create additional FTP account via cPanel (add-on FTP account)
Important When you use cPanel username and password you get access to all directories of your account. If you want to connect to a particular directory only or grant someone an access to a particular directory only, add-on FTP comes in handy.''
Basic FTP settings
Host: use your domain (without http://www) or server IP address
Username: cPanel username (for default FTP account); firstname.lastname@example.org (for additional FTP accounts)
- to check add-on FTP account name please go to cPanel > Files > FTP accounts
Password: cPanel password for default FTP account); add-on FTP account password (can be reset cPanel > Files > FTP Accounts > Change password)
Port: standard FTP port we use is 21. If you are connecting via SFTP please use 65321 (SSH access must be enabled)
