How to set up separate FTP accounts

An FTP account allows you to manage your website files on your hosting space with us. If you want to give a colleague or web designer access to your web files, but don't want to give them your LCN account username and password, you can create a separate FTP account for them.

    1. Log in to your account.
    2. Click the Hosting icon, then click Manage Site for the hosting you want to add an FTP account to.
    3. Click FTP Accounts from the Current Hosting menu on the left.
    4. Click the Add FTP Account button.
    5. In the FTP Username field enter a prefix for your new FTP user.
All FTP usernames will end in your domain name with the dots replaced e.g. username_domain_com.
  1. In the FTP Password enter a password and confirm it.
  2. Click the Add FTP Account button.
