Intro to FTP


There are many ways that you can transfer files and folder to and from your hosting account. We highly recommend using an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program to quickly upload and download files. We have provided guides to demonstrate how to setup the most common FTP programs, Filezilla, Cyberduck, and Fetch. We will also show how to manage files using the File Manager in the cPanel.
