Uploading your files into your easyWEB account (FTP/SFTP instructions)

1. Download an SFTP Client

To upload your website to the server you will need to connect with an FTP client, we recommend Filezilla. It is a free download and works well on both PC and Mac operating systems. You can download Filezilla here https://filezilla-project.org/download.php

2. Enter FTP Credentials

Fill out the following fields with your FTP login credentials. You will be provided these credentials via email to your easyDNS member account when your easyWEB installation is provisioned.

Host: [your easyWEB hostname]
Username: [ your easyWEB username]
Password: [ your easyWEB password]

Click on “Quickconnect”
