How to create an FTP account

When you install your web hosting package, an FTP address is automatically created which you can use to upload files or a website. You can reset the password for this account to use it, or you can create additional FTP users who can manage your web hosting.

Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Go to FTP settings Log in to the Plesk Control Panel

If you don't know how to do this, follow this guide. You are in the main menu of Plesk.
Click on the "FTP Access" button.

Step 2: Add FTP account

Then click on the "Add FTP Account" button.

In the next screen, you can specify:

  • FTP account name: This will be the username for access.
  • Home directory: Select the directory where the user should go when connecting to the FTP account.
  • Password: The password needed for access.

Click "OK" to create the FTP account.
