FTP Programs - Configure, Manage and Upload

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the method used to transfer files from your personal computer (upload) to the web server. FTP programs can also be used to transfer files from the web server to your personal computer (download).

In order to use FTP it is helpful to have a program designed specifically for this purpose. Below are instructions for common FTP programs.

Upload files to your web site

  • ftp address:
  • username: check your welcome email
  • password: check your welcome email
  • remote directory:
  • default first page: index.html

If you want a file to be visible on the web it must be placed in your public web directory (folder). Your public web directory is automatically created and is named the same as your domain name. The homepage of any site should be named "index.html"
