What is FTP?

FTP (or File Transfer Protocol) is a way to move files from your computer to your hosting account and vice versa. To use FTP, you'll need an FTP client. There are many different clients you can use, but we recommend FileZilla.

Note: Our hosting accounts only support passive FTP. This setting is present in most FTP clients and website design software that support publishing with FTP.

Next steps

How you move your files is dependent on the type of hosting account you have.
