FTP Connection – How to FTP to your Account

To establish an FTP connection and access your account, there are several things you need to know:

  • The FTP server hostname - usually, this is your domain name. In addition, you can access your account directly via your server IP (this eliminates domain resolving issues).
  • Your FTP login details - if your account is hosted in a company, that uses cPanel like SiteGround, you can create FTP users, assign folders to them and set their passwords via the FTP Users tool.
  • FTP connection software - you need either a browser that supports FTP connection, or a specialised FTP client in order to access your account. Check out our article on how to establish an FTP connection using an FTP client for more information on that matter.

FTP is easy to set up and work with when you have the right host to support you. Check out what SiteGround’s FTP hosting offers and sign up for our services so you could rely on expert FTP assistance!
