FTP To Your Website

Instructions for setting up FTP to your site

The Business Edge hosting package includes an FTP account which allows you to transfer files to and from your website folders. You can use just about any FTP application to connect to the server, but it must support an encrypted connection using implicit FTP over TLS or FTP over implicit SSL.

When setting up your FTP application, please use the following information:

HOST: this should be your domain name (i.e. www.yourdomain.com)
PORT: 990
PROTOCOL: FTP
ENCRYPTION: Implicit FTP over TLS or FTP over implicit SSL
LOGIN TYPE: Normal
USERNAME: <your username>
PASSWORD: <your ftp password>

Here are screen shots of the proper encryption setting for some of the more common FTP applications:

Filezilla:

Transmit:

You may be asked to trust the certificate. Please accept or trust the certificate if prompted.

Please send any questions you may have about your FTP account to hosting@busedge.com.
