How to create additional FTP accounts in cPanel.

This demo assumes you've already logged in to cPanel.

Let's go ahead and add another FTP account.

1) Scroll down. 

2) Click the FTP Accounts link. 


This is where you manage your FTP accounts.

3) Scroll down. 

As you can here, there are several FTP accounts already set up. Most were created when your hosting account was set up.

4) But we're going to create a new FTP account. 

5) Scroll up. 

6) Enter a Login name and a password for the new FTP account. 


7) Re-enter the password. 

If you leave forward-slash demo in the directory box, then the user of this FTP account will only have access to the forward-slash demo directory, and all folders under it.

To give the user access to the entire website, delete everything except the forward slash "/"


You can put a quota limit on this FTP account if you wish.


8) Then click the Create button. 


That's it! We've successfully added a new FTP account.

9) Click the Go Back link. 


The new FTP account we just created is shown in the list here.


From here you can delete existing FTP accounts, edit the FTP account properties (quota, password, etc.), or create new FTP accounts.

This is the end of the tutorial. You can return any time to add more FTP accounts, modify their quotas, change their privileges, or delete them entirely.
