FTP  
The FTP area deals with all the tools relating to setting up and managing FTP accounts, as well 
as managing FTP sessions. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a method by which you can transfer 
files between computers, usually using the Internet. There is a huge amount of information 
stored on FTP servers around the world which can only be accessed by using FTP. When using 
FTP you use an application called a "client" to connect to a machine called a "server".  
There are a large number of FTP software packages available. Some of them are built in to 
your browser (such as Internet Explorer), others are dedicated applications (such as such as 
CuteFTP
 or 
WS_FTP
), while still others are built into web applications (
File Manager
 in CPanel 
is one example). Generally speaking, if you are going to spend a lot of time using FTP or have a 
large amount of files to upload/download, a dedicated FTP client is the way to go.  
CPanel allows you to set up FTP accounts so that certain external users can access a restricted 
part of your system. You can also set up an anonymous FTP account so that anyone can 
access a restricted part of your system. You can also manage these FTP sessions, cutting them 
off if they go on for too long.  
Warning: FTP, by its very nature, allows external users to modify your web site (albeit a 
restricted area of your web site). External users can upload, download, and delete files. Keep 
this in mind when you set up an FTP account.

Adding an FTP account  
An FTP account creates a folder on the www level of your site that allows external users that 
know the password to upload and download files from that location. Change your password if 
you think that your account is being used incorrectly.  
To add an FTP account: 
1.  Click on the FTP Accounts link in the FTP area.  
2.  Enter the name of the FTP account in the FTP username field and the password for the 
account in the Password field.  
3.  Click on the Add button. Click on the FTP accounts link to return to the FTP Accounts 
window to confirm that it has been created.
