Setting up FileZilla

Last Updated: Mar 21, 2019

FTP is a standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and server on a computer network. FTP is useful for uploading content directly to your hosting plan. FileZilla is one of the most commonly used FTP services. You can download FileZilla here: filezilla-project.org

 

These are the instructions for using FileZilla's FTP service with your Name.com hosting plan:

1. Click File in the upper left corner of FileZilla and then choose Site Manager

2. Click the New Site button

  • Port - empty
