cPanel FTPS using TLS Encryption
Configuring secure FTPS for cPanel accounts is very easy. 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.
