Connecting To FileZilla Via FTP
by Todd Hall
- 1. Enter the correct Host/Domain/IP address into the ‘Host:’ field. This could be the server name, the server IP, domain name,and in some cases ftp.domain.com. For a TMD HOSTING account, yourdomain.com will be fine so long as it is properly pointed towards the server.
- 2. Enter the correct FTP username into the ‘Username:’ field. This can be the cPanel username which is also an FTP account.
- 3. Enter the correct password for the user previously entered.
- 4. Enter port 21 for FTP and port 22 for SFTP.
- 5. Click the ‘Quickconnect’ button. In the window immediately below, results of the the connection will be shown.A successful connection will end in â€œDirectory listing successful.â€.
The quickest and easiest way to establish a connection between a local machine (the computer you are connecting from) and a remote server (the computer/server you are connecting to) using FileZilla is by using the ‘Quickconnect’ bar.
*The port will automatically default to 21 if none is entered.
*The host must resolve to the server, so if the domain is still propagating you will need to use the server name or server IP to establish a connection.
*If connecting via an additional FTP account, make sure to use the full FTP username (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org).
*You can add and save multiple connections using the Site Manager found in File > Site Manager
*To connect via FTP using root, it must be a secure connection. Changing the port to 22 will automatically set the host to https:// making it a secure connection. If there is no secure connection available, the connection will fail. Only VPS/Dedicated plans have access to root.
