You can begin uploading files to your hosting account now by using one of two methods:

> FTP Client

There are many different FTP programs available; some free, some paid and some just better than others. You can manage FTP Accounts in cPanel by clicking the FTP Accounts icon in the Files section.

Please Note: Assistance with a third party FTP client beyond basic settings and connections is outside of our scope of support and will need to be taken to the attention of the program's developing company.

If you dont have an FTP program see this: Where Can I Download a Free FTP?

FTP Connection Settings:
Once you have the FTP program of choice, the proper settings will need to be configured to connect to the hosting account. A general run through of the setup of FTP can be found in the following article: General FTP Settings

If you wish to use a tool which is already installed and configured, cPanel does have a browser based file manager that allows you to upload your content from within your control panel.

Document Roots:
FTP clients such as FileZilla and CuteFTP tend to use File Transfer Protocol connections between the local machine and the remote server to manipulate, add and remove files within various document roots.

The document root is the folder where you keep website files for a domain name. Since cPanel allows for multiple domain names, it is recommended that you create a unique folder for each domain to avoid confusion.

For more information on document roots, please see the following articles:

> File Manager

cPanel's File Manager feature is an easy way to navigate and view files within the cPanel interface. File Manager assists in the use of proper file paths and permissions and allows even the newest of beginners to see the file structure of their sites.

You can access File Manager in cPanel by clicking the File Manager icon in the Files section.
