FTP Server FTP Settings


To publish your website on your web space you will need to upload your web pages from your own computer to your web space on the Web Wiz web servers. This is done via File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

FTP Settings

Before you can upload your content to your hosting space on our systems you first need to create an FTP account through your Hosting Control Panel, under the 'FTP Accounts' page. See our Tutorial on Creating an FTP Account for more information.

To upload your pages to the web server you will need to enter the following settings in your FTP software: -

FTP Settings

FTP Host Address ftp.WebSiteLive.net
Login As you have specified in your Control Panel
Password As you have specified in your Control Panel
Connection Port 21
FTP Mode Passive
TLS/SSL Encryption Explicit FTP over TLS
(You may need to open Ports 54000 to 55000 on your firewall in order to use an encrypted connection)

When you upload your website your web pages need to be uploaded to the 'wwwroot' folder located in your FTP account under a folder named after the primary domain name for the website. The 'wwwroot' folder is the public root of your website.

Please also read the documentation on, Understanding the File System, to fully understand where to upload your website to.


Publishing Your Website

To upload your files via FTP, you need to have a program running on your computer that allows you to upload your files to your web space. The program that Web Wiz Hosts recommended for this task is the free FileZilla FTP Client.

The page below has Video Tutorials on how to setup a FTP Account and use FileZilla:-
