We currently offer the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) as the main interface to the website files located on our systems. In addition we support encrypted FTP (Implicit and Explicit) if you need additional security when using FTP to transmit data. You can use FTP to upload and download your website files using the FTP login information that was provided in your welcome email (contact us if you lost this information). The FTP client software we suggest for our customers is “FileZilla“, which is available for multiple Operating Systems. If you want a mount point or drive letter so it looks like a local drive using FTP, then check out these software packages:
The only prerequisite we have is that “Passive Mode” is turned on, which is normally the default setting. We suggest using FTP with SSL so the connection is encrypted for security.
We do not offer a web based file manager that is available on a global basis due to security and availability concerns. If you wish to have a file manager available for your website, you can easily use FTP to upload your own file manager. Here is a list of 7 examples of file managers that are available:
