To log in using the program you need to configure it with your user ID, which is usually ftp.yourdomain.com and your password, which is provided in the confirmation email of your subscription.
An FTP account creates a folder at the public_html level of your site, which allows external users who know the password to upload and upload files from this site. Change your password if you suspect that your account is being used incorrectly.
Note: Please remember that all users with the correct password will be able to add, edit and delete files from the directory that you specified for FTP, consider any directory within the declared directory.
