Description

Overview

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a protocol used to transfer files from one host to another e.g. from your computer to our website servers. Upon subscribing to a website hosting plan, users are provided with FTP details so that they may use a third party FTP client to upload their website files to our servers. Below are instructions on where to locate, update and manage your FTP details.

Cloud Hosting FTP details

To connect to your cloud hosting account via FTP you will need a hostname, username and password. The hostname will be formatted as ftp.domain.com (replace domain.com with the domain attached to your account) however you can also use ftp.netregistry.net if the DNS for your domain is hosted outside of Netregistry. To find your username and password, see the steps below.
