Once you’ve chosen and setup an FTP program, you’ll need to find your server address, username and password.

You’ll then be able to login to your server address and starting transferring files to and from your website.

Most web hosts will email you these details after you sign up for a web hosting package.

You’ll find your FTP information in the welcome email you receive from your host:

Note: Your FTP username and password are generally the same as your cPanel username and password.

Your hostname is generally your domain name.
