FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. One can upload files & folders to his/her hosting space using FTP. Let’s learn about uploading files using FTP.
How to Upload files using FTP
STEP 1: Download a FTP Client. We recommend using FileZilla. Download FileZilla for 32 Bit or 64 Bit and install it on your machine.
STEP 2: Double click on the FileZilla icon on your Desktop to open it.
STEP 3: Input your Hostname, Username, Password & Port & click on ‘Quick Connect’ to connect to your WebHost. If you do not have a Account you can create a FTP Account.
STEP 4: If you’re using FileZilla for the first time you may see a warning regarding certificate. Check ‘Always trust certificate in future sessions’ & click ok.
STEP 5: Now you’re connected to your WebHost. You’ll see files on your Hosting Space on the right pan & files in your local machine on the left pan. Simply click on your desired file on the left pan & drag it to the right pan to start uploading. You’ll be able to monitor the upload progress on the bottom of FileZilla software.
STEP 6: Once your file is uploaded you’ll see the file on the right pan.
Congrats, you’ve successfully uploaded the first file.
