How to terminate FTP connections in Plesk

You cannot terminate the primary FTP connection for your hosting account. However, you can delete any of the additional FTP connections you have created.

If you are using the Linux Hosting product, you can terminate FTP connections in the cPanel by clicking here.

If you are using the Windows Hosting product, follow the steps below to terminate FTP connections in the Plesk panel:

  1. Click My Account at the top of this page.
  2. Select Hosting Manager from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter your username and password, then click Log In.
  4. Click Websites & Domains from the left-side menu.
  5. Click the FTP Access icon from the options under your domain name.
    If you can't find the icon, click the [V] Show More option.
  6. Click on the box beside the FTP Account Name that you wish to delete.
  7. Click the [x] Remove button at the top of the page.
  8. On the pop-up window, click Yes to confirm.

Congratulations! You have now terminated your FTP connections in Plesk.

Updating the FTP password for Security

The main FTP account's default username and password is the same as your Plesk panel login details. If you need to provide FTP details to your developer, it is recommended that you create an FTP account with limited access specifically for them. Or, you can change the FTP password of your main FTP account first, to ensure that you remain in control of your hosting, before providing the login details to your developer.

To update your main FTP account's password, follow the steps below:

  1. Click My Account at the top of this page.
  2. Select Hosting Manager from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter your username and password, then click Log In.
  4. Click Websites & Domains from the left-side menu.
  5. Click the FTP Access icon from the options under your domain name.
    If you can't find the icon, click the [V] Show More option.
  6. Click on the FTP Account Name that you wish to manage.
  7. Enter a new Password and re-enter to Confirm password, in the respective fields provided.
  8. Click OK to save.

Congratulations! You have now updated your FTP account's password in Plesk. You now have different login passwords for the Plesk panel and the main FTP account.
