How do I log in via FTP with FileZilla?

FileZilla is a free program that you use to log in to your hosting account via FTP. This way you easily manage all files within your hosting account.

Important

  • FileZilla has not been developed by us. We therefore do not guarantee or support this program. If you have questions, go to the Filezilla website.

  • In the steps we use FileZilla for Mac, but FileZilla for Windows works exactly the same. So you can just follow these steps if you have Windows.

  • The files for your primary domain always go into the public_html folder.
