In this article, we have explained how to configure FTP clients in cPanel. Users can use the Configure FTP client feature in cPanel to auto-configure FTP client, if using FTP applications like FileZilla, CoreFTP (for Windows), or Cyberduck (for Mac).

Note- Presently cPanel only supports these three FTP clients for auto-configuration. If you wish to use another FTP client, you will have to manually set up the FTP client.
