Hello ritalewis, Thank you for your question on connecting to FTP. I created a test FTP account in lieu of your cPanel user and it will not connect to the host name because it is pointing to CloudFlare. You will want to point it to your web hosting server name instead. This makes a direct FTP connection to the web server and does not go through cloudflare, which is what you want when managing files.
