4. Then, to change the FTP password, click "Change Password" next to "FTP/Control Panel"
Open CuteFTP's site manager under the "Tools" menu, and select "Display Site".
Enter a name for your website in the "Label" field. Enter "ftp.yourdomain.com" in the "Host Address" field. Then enter your FTP username and password.
Select the "Actions" tab. You must enter "/public_html" in the field that reads "When client connects, switch to this remote folder".
You're done! Press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the screen to connect to your server.
