Setting up FileZilla

Last Updated: Jun 27, 2017

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
  • Encryption - Only use plain FTP (insecure)
  • Username and Password from your hosting dashboard. (You can find this by going to MyAccount>>WebHosting)
