FTP (file transfer protocol)

Solution

FTP (file transfer protocol) is the main method of up loading files to you web space, it can also be used to make directories etc. Every account comes with at least one FTP login and password, this is the same as you use to login to the control panel.

To FTP into your account you will first need to get a copy of an FTP program, we recommend Cute FTP, which you can get from www.cuteftp.com, or FileZilla Client, which you can get from www.filezilla-project.org. To set up you FTP client you will need to give it some information about our server, this information is listed below:

Username & Password - This is the same as you choose when you started the account and you will find it in your welcome e-mail.

Host name - username.dns-systems.net or you can use any domain on our system by just entering yourdomian.com (no http://). If you would like to have personal ftp server address ie http://ftp.yourdomain.com then just make the subdomain ftp for the domian you would like the personal http://ftp.

Host Type - All our servers are Unix based, running Linux operating systems.
