Where and How to upload files on the server using FTP?

Generally, an FTP program will ask you for the following information:

  • Host/Server Name: this can be your domain name or your IP Address.
  • User ID/Name: the FTP user name.
  • Password: the FTP password.
  • Initial Remote directory/folder: this should be /public_ftp
  • Initial Local folder: whatever you want (this specifies where on your computer it will look for files)

Once you have established a connection with your domain on our server, it is usually a very simple process to upload and download files to and from the server.

Note: ALL files must be uploaded to your public_ftp directory in your account.
