FTP access to your websites

One of the easiest ways to update website content is to upload via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). FTP is a standard network protocol that lets you transfer files between two hosts, such as your computer and the Plesk server. Plesk acts as an FTP server and users access the directories on the server through an FTP client. Plesk provides all the important FTP features:

  • Authorized access to the server. For more information, see the section Change the FTP access data.
  • Multiple user accounts for the cooperation. For more information, see the section Add FTP accounts.
  • Anonymous FTP Access: This access without authorization can be used, for example, to pass on software updates. For more information, see the section Set up anonymous FTP access.

Note: Information is transmitted unencrypted via FTP. We therefore recommend using the secure FTP protocol (also known as FTP SSL). FTPS is supported by most modern FTP clients. Instructions for activating FTPS can be found in the technical documentation of your FTP client.

Change the FTP access data

To change the user name or password to the FTP account of your system user:

  1. Go to Websites & Domains > search for the corresponding domain> Web Hosting Access.
  2. Enter a new username or a new password.
  3. click on OK.

    • read permission (Windows hosting). If you want to allow the FTP user to view the contents of the home directory and download files from this directory, check the box next to read permission.
    • write permission (Windows hosting). If you want to allow the FTP user to create, view, rename, and delete directories in the home directory, check the box next to write permission.

      If you do not grant permissions, you will be connected to the FTP account, but the contents of the home directory will not be displayed to the user (for Windows hosting).
