Instructions

Typically when one of our Professionals sets up an FTP Account through your Plesk or cPanel it is done for the purpose of allowing you to transfer files, edit site files, store files and to update media.  To do this we require an ftp client such as FileZilla or root access via ssh.  FileZilla is both user friendly and feature rich.

To Start install your FileZilla FTP Client.  Open up Filezilla.  Enter in your FTP Account Details you were provided by one of our Professionals into top bar as shown.

Your Host Name is typically ftp.example.com i.e. (example.com being your domain name).  Then enter in your username and password that was provided to you and press quick connect.

Now that you are logged in you will notice numerous folders / files on lower right window of FileZilla.  Per your requirements you will be able to edit, transfer, and store files.
