Setup FTPS in cPanel
We’ve created a document on how to setup FTPS in cPanel for you. FTPS and Secure FTP are both different. This is for FTPS. Make sure you have the following pieces of information:
Host: cpanel1.hosting.ca (or the relevant server name upon signup)
Protocol: FTP – File Transfer Protocol
Encryption: Use explicit FTP over TLS if available
FileZilla was used below in this example, but other programs will have similar settings.
You may be prompted to accept a certificate, please proceed by accepting it. That’s it! Once you are connected securely, you can see a lock icon on the status bar.
