Getting Started Guide: FTP

Connecting to your server is fast and easy when using FTP access. Dot Easy Australia Hosting has the cPanel File Manager that you can use to upload files to your server; however, the File Manager requires you to upload one file at a time. With FTP, you can upload all your files to your server at once.

You DO NOT have to create an FTP account to connect to your server. If you use the cPanel username and password, you can connect directly to your servers "Home" directory.


Hostname: Your domain name here ex:
Username: cPanel Username (For example: username99)
Password: cPanel Password
Port: 21

How to View your FTP Settings:

Step 1.  Login to cPanel.
Step 2.  Under Files click the FTP Accounts button.
Step 3.  In the Special FTP Accounts section, you will see an icon of a little person, click the Configure FTP Client link to the right, and you will see your settings displayed.
