 What is FTP and how do I use it?

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. FTP is used to transfer your files from your local computer to your website hosting space. To use FTP you will usually need a piece of software called an FTP Client. Many are free to download, eg Filezilla, Smart FTP and BulletProof FTP.

To use FTP you will need the following:

  • A web hosting package with FTP access
  • The FTP host name
  • Your FTP username
  • Your FTP password

You will find all the above information in your Welcome to Teckna email, sent to you when your website hosting account was first created.
