FTP accounts can be used to manipulate files on a web server via a protocol. FileZilla or other desktop software will be able to move, download, and upload files to your accounts for hosting thanks to a protocol. We’ll go over what you’ll need to do to connect to your account using FTP.
For Host, you can choose either the server IP or your domain name. You can find the IP you need to input by going to cPanel’s main menu and clicking on Shared IP on the right side of the screen.
The Password and Username are either the FTP account password and username, or the cPanel account password and username. Keep in mind that the username and password for FTP Accounts will be in the format [email protected], rather than your cPanel username and password.
The SFTP port is 22 and the normal FTP port is 21.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a protocol for transferring files and communicating between computers on a TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) network, often known as the internet. Users who have been allowed access to the File Transfer Protocol Server can send and receive files.
Two sides of the network must communicate in order for the FTP connection to work. To gain access to the FTP server, users must first give credentials. Keep in mind, however, that not all servers require credentials to access their files. Some public FTP servers, for example, do not require authentication. These are also known as anonymous FTP servers.
There are two main communication channels for establishing an FTP connection. One of them is known as a data channel, and it is where data is distributed. The command channel is the second one, and it is where the instruction and response are started. A user who is authorized will utilize the protocol to inquire about making changes to the server in order to transfer or retrieve a file.
If you’ve never used FTP before, we recommend downloading Filezilla. Filezilla is available for download at https://filezilla-project.org/.
The commands you’ll need are as follows:
You must double-click on a folder to open it.
To return to the previous folder, locate the “..” folder and double-click it.
In order to download a file, you need to double-click on it.
To upload files to the server, you need to double-click or drag and drop the files on your local computer.
Right-clicking on files or folders brings up a menu with a variety of options, including File Permissions, Move, Delete, Copy, and so on.
