Connect to a Server with FTP

To connect with FTP (File Transfer Protocol) you will need FTP client Software. Filezilla and CoreFTP are common programs.  You could also utilize code editor software with built-in FTP like Adobe Dreamweaver.

To connect you will need the FTP username and password, the server address or host address, and the port number.  cPanel offers common FTP client software configuration files for download.

Note: In some instances it will be required to use the IP address in place of the FTP address or host address.  (192.72.1.1 instead of ftp.yourdomain.com).
