How do I create an FTP account?

FTP Accounts allow you to access your web site's files through a protocol
called FTP (File Transfer Protocol). You will need a third party FTP program
to access your files. You can login to a FTP by entering the domain name
you are currently using when you create the FTP account. The domain name
will be the host name. You will also use the username and password of the
account you wish to log into after successfully creating the FTP account
as describe in the following instructions.

Creating An FTP Account


Steps

  1. Set the following:
    • Login - Enter the username you want to use for
      this particular FTP account.
    • Password - Enter the password you want to use
      for this particular FTP account. When you tab or click on the "Password" text
      box, the next setting automatically defaults to the root/public_html/LOGIN
      or USERNAME you entered above. You can change the location according
      to your own specific needs.
    • Directory - By default the "Directory" text
      box will automatically be populated with the root/public_html/LOGIN
      or USERNAME you entered above. You can change the location according
      to your own specific needs.
    • Quota (MB) - By default the "Quota" text
      box is populated with "Unlimited." This means the FTP account
      you are creating will have an unlimited amount of disk space. Even
      if you leave it set as the default
      "Unlimited," the actual disk space used by the FTP account
      will not exceed the amount of disk space allocated to the domain
      the account is residing.
  2. Click on the Create button.
  3. You will see the following statement:
    • "The FTP account LOGIN with password PASSWORD was added and
      a quote of QUOTA megs (0 or blank is unlimited).."
  4. Click on the Go Back link.
  5. When the page loads, you will see an "Accounts Management" table
    consisting of the following information split into six columns:
    • User - This entry shows the login/username for
      the associated FTP account.
    • Type - This entry shows various icons depending
      on the type of FTP account. View the "Legend" table for
      further information.
    • Directory - This entry shows the location of the
      FTP account (the FTP user is restricted to the directory defined
      in this entry).
    • Disk Usage - This entry shows the amount of disk
      space used by the associated FTP account.
    • Quota - This entry shows the amount of disk space
      allocated to the associated FTP account.
    • Functions - This entry provides the following options:
      • Delete - Click on the Delete icon
        to delete the FTP account from the system.
      • Edit Quota - Click on the Edit Quota icon
        to change or modify the amount of disk space allocated to the
        associated FTP account.
      • Change Password - Click on the Change
        Password
        icon to change or modify the password of
        the associated FTP account.
