To give others access to your Linux Hosting account, add them as FTP users so they can also upload files or manage your site. You can limit what these users can access, and how much they can upload.

  1. Go to your ELITE WEB Co. product page.
  2. Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  3. In the upper-left corner of the account Dashboard, select FTP Manager.
  4. In the cPanel FTP Accounts page, below Add FTP Account, complete these fields:
FieldWhat it means…
Log inThe first part of your username. The full username includes @[your account’s primary domain name]. So if your primary domain is coolexample.com, and you enter ftpuser, then the full username for FTP will be ftpuser@coolexample.com.
PasswordThe password for this FTP user.
DirectoryThe directory this user can access. To give this user access to the entire account, enter nothing but a forward slash (/).
QuotaTotal size of the files (in MB) this user can upload to that directory. Select Unlimited for no limit. Existing files in a directory count towards the quota.
  1. Click Create FTP Account.Repeat these steps for any other users you want to add. You can have up to 50 FTP users for Economy and Deluxe accounts, and an unlimited number for Ultimate accounts.
