Uploading your files via FTP

FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol and is the default method you'll use to upload files to your account if you are not using a development package such as FrontPage, DreamWeaver or Visual Studio which publishes your files for you.

In order to use FTP you will need some software, called an FTP Client, which connects to the server and allows you to log into your account, copy, move, rename and delete the files that make up your web site.

There are many FTP clients available and your hosting account supports any standards compliant FTP client. For the purposes of this guide we will use Core FTP Lite which an excellent and easy to use FTP client and is free to use - download it here.

Setting up Core FTP to upload your files

When you load Core FTP for the first time you'll shown the 'Site Manager' screen, this is where you enter the details to allow the FTP client to connect to your DotNetted account.

There are many options on this page but you only have to complete a few of the items in order to connect to your account and begin uploading files, you'll need to complete :

Site Name : This is just a label to identify your site, e.g. your domain name
Host Name : this will be ftp. and your domain name e.g.
User Name : your account ftp username
Password : your account ftp password

You have now provided all of the required information so click on the 'Connect' button at the bottom of the 'Site Manager' screen and Core FTP will connect to your account.

Once connected you will now be presented by a new screen with two panels, the left hand panel shows the file system on your local PC, the right hand panel shows the files and folders on the server within your account.

To upload files to your hosting account simply locate them and select them in the left hand panel then click on the upload icon (blue arrow pointing right) to upload them to your hosting account. To download files from your account to your local machine just select the files in the right hand panel and click on the download icon (blue arrow pointing left).

There are many more functions within Core FTP that we can't cover here that will allow you to move, delete and copy files and folders as well as creating new folders within your account, for details please refer to the help files within the Core FTP program.

Note : Uploading whilst awaiting domain propagation

When your hosting account is first created it will take 24 - 48 hours before your new or transferred domain name is live on the account. During this time you can access your FTP account using the temporary FTP server name noted in your MyDotNetted account.
