CuteFTP tutorial

Answer

CuteFTP allows you to easily transfer your web page files from your computer to your web space on our servers.

How to set up CuteFTP:

First you need to create a connection entry for your site. You can create the entry using the IP address for your site, or by using ftp.yourdomain.com if your domain name is active on our system. Type in the appropriate username and password for your account. Note that your password is automatically stored for you - remember to change your password here if you change your password via your control panel!

Once you've entered that information, click the Edit button. Here you can set the directory where your files are located on your PC by specifying that directory in the "Default Local Directory" field. Please note that the slash direction is important when entering these paths. Click OK to save these settings.

A short explanation of the folders for your account:

When you FTP to your account, or when you view a list of files and folders from the File Manager on the control panel, you will see certain system-created folders for your use. These folders should not be deleted when maintaining your account: public_html, www, public_ftp, etc, catalogs, mail and cgi-bin. In addition, if FrontPage extensions are installed on your account, the _vti* folders should be added to the list. Deleting these folders could leave your site inaccessible until support can restore them or recreate them.
