Uploading, managing the files through control panel is hard way, because we can’t able to upload more than one file through control panel.
For easy accessing of files in the server, a protocol called FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is used. By FTP file transfer the following are possible
- More than one file can be uploaded simultaneously
- Drag and drop method will ease our file uploading
To create FTP account, Click on FTP Accounts, which is under Files section
Under Add FTP Account section, provide all details i.e., Login, password, Directory and quota for FTP user.
Directory option in the FTP account addition means, which directory that user can able to access. To access all files and directories, just leave Directory as “public_html“
Login Details for FTP user
FTP Username: email@example.com
FTP Server: ftp.tobbynews.com
FTP Server Port: 21
SFTP Server Port: 22
Cpanel will provide
seperate FTP and SFTP configuration files for FTP client softwares
- filezilla (windows)
- core FTP (windows)
- cyberduck (Mac)
Best FTP client software are
- Filezilla for windows
- cyberduck for Mac
This is how we have to give login details like server address, username, password and port number.
After successful login, two sided page will be provided. Left side listed files are the files in our hard disk, right side files are present server. Any change made in this files or directories will reflect in the server. We can just drag and drop our files for uploading and downloading.
