How to create FTP accounts in Plesk

You can create as many FTP accounts as you need within the cPanel for your Linux Web Hosting product or the Plesk panel for your Windows Web Hosting product. You can also grant or limit access to specific files and folders when setting up FTP accounts in your hosting.

If you are using the Linux Hosting product, you can create multiple accounts for FTP in the cPanel by clicking here.
