How to add FTP accounts with SiteWorx

The number of additional accounts available to you depends on your specific hosting plan.

ATTENTION: For security reasons, our servers require TLS encryption on FTP, also known as FTP over TLS.  

ATTENTION: This method only works for Nexcess Classic (non-Cloud) clients. If you are a Nexcess Cloud client, see instead How to generate and view SSH/FTP passwords for your Nexcess Cloud account.

  1. Log in to your SiteWorx account.
  2. From the SiteWorx main menu, click Hosting Features > FTP > Accounts.

  3. In the FTP Username field, enter your desired username.

  4. Type your password, or click Generate to have one created for you.

  5. Note your root directory in the Home Directory field. To select a specific subdirectory, click the default directory and select your preferred directory (Figure 3), then select your desired directory from the directory tree and click OK.

  6. Expand each directory if necessary by clicking on the plus sign and then on the subdirectory name.

  7. To complete this task, click Add
