What is FTP?

FTP is a standard network protocol for downloading and uploading files from your computer to the server.

We recommend you to try FileZilla, it’s free software and available for most popular platforms.

Using FileZilla software

To use FileZilla software, follow the steps below:

  1. Download and install FileZilla.
  2. Navigate to File > Site Manager and click on the New Site button. Set the login type as Normal. Then open panel in your hosting account to find Hostname, port, username, and password. Fill them in corresponding fields in FileZilla.
  3. Click on the Connect button. After that, a list of files and folders on the server will appear. Now you can edit files and folders from your local computer and upload them to the server.

Finding your FTP credentials

These details would mostly have been sent to you by your hosting provider, via email as soon as you created a domain.
