To find this information, select FTP User link in FTP/User Account menu.

Note: instead of using an FTP client, you may choose here Parallels H-Sphere built-in Web-based file manager WebShell by clicking the File Manager (HtProtect) link.
- Password is by default the password associated with your username. If necessary, you can change and hence make it different from you control panel password.

There are different ways to allow guest users to download, upload or view files in dedicated directories of your account:
