FTP feature allows you to access your website files through a protocol called file transfer protocol.To achieve this you need a third party software and my most favorite is called File Zilla.

Directory Privacy

Another feature available in the cpanel is the directory protection.This feature allows you to protect your directories by making sure a name and password is used to access those files.

Email Forwarding

Email forwarding sends a copy of any incoming email from one address to another.This saves you the time to read your mails since you can receive them from one main account.In addition to forwarding individual mail accounts, you can forward all email from one domain to another.

autoresponders work by configuring an email account to send automated emails.This is very useful if you are on vacation or on leave.
