How do I connect to my file manager using FTP?

You can use an FTP client such as FileZilla to connect to your file manager remotely without directly logging into cPanel. You can also create seperate FTP accounts with a set area in case you need someone to access your file manager but don't want them to have full access to your files. Our FTP connection is different from a lot of other hosts so please use the information below accordingly. These settings are for the use of FileZilla but are similar with other FTP clients.

  • Host:
  • Port: Leave Blank
  • Protocol: FTP - File Transfer Protocol
  • Encryption: Use explicit FTP over TLS
  • Logon Type: Normal
  • Username: cPanel Username
  • Password: cPanel Password

Please keep in mind your username and password varies depending on if you changed your default cPanel account password or created seperate FTP accounts.
