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
User: your-ftp-user-name
Password: your-ftp-password
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.
