You can upload your website files using a number of different tools an FTP Client or  a Web Browser

An FTP Client is useful when uploading a large number of files. Also, it is the most suitable application for uploading files with size of several Megabytes and more. Furthermore, a regular FTP client allows the user to manage the folder structure of the FTP space and file permissions. Examples of popular FTP clients are CuteFTP, WS_FTP, SmartFTP, FileZilla, LeechFTP, etc.

 

A Web Browser is good when you want to have quicker access without the need to configure any additional software. However, a web browser is not as efficient as a regular FTP Client when you need to upload larger files because the FTP connection usually time outs.

 

The File Manager is available through your Control Panel. It is extremely useful to manage the folder structure of your web space, upload a smaller number of files, or edit them directly on the server.

 

FTP CLIENT:

 

To upload your site using an FTP client, you will need the following information:



  1. Hostname (host address):




    • Unix-Based plans (Solo, SoloXR, Pro, ePro) - This is ftpusername.web.turnkeyinternet.net or your actual hosted domain name provided that it already resolves properly to your turnkeyinternet.net hosting server. Please replace ftpusername with your actual Main FTP username associated with your hosting plan.
    • Windows-Based plans (Primo, PrimoXR, Proxima, Maxima) – This is either ftpusername.win.turnkeyinternet.net or your actual hosted domain name provided that it already resolves properly to your turnkeyinternet.Net hosting server. Please replace ftpusername with your actual Main FTP username associated with your hosting plan.



  1. Username and password: The username and password are the Main FTP username and password you set up when you signed up for hosting with turnkeyinternet.net.
  2. Host Directory (Remote folder):




    • If you have a Unix-based hosting plan, you have to upload your website files into the html folder.
    • If you have a Windows-based hosting plan, you have to upload your website files into the WWWROOT folder.

 

Note: Our hosting servers also support FTP upload over a secure TLS connection. You can setup such a connection with most FTP clients.

 

WEB BROWSER:

 

Please have in mind that you can establish an FTP connection with a Web Browser that has built-in FTP capabilities like Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc. To upload your site using a web browser, please type the following in the browser address bar:



  • Unix-based plans: ftp://ftpusername.web.turnkeyinternet.net. (Replace the ftpusername part with your actual Main FTP username.) Then enter your Main FTP username and password when prompted.
  • Windows-based plans: ftp://ftpusername.win.turnkeyinternet.net. (Replace the ftpusername part with your actual Main FTP username.) Then enter your Main FTP username and password when prompted.

 

Note: Feel free to replace ftpusername.web.turnkeyinternet.net or ftpusername.win.turnkeyinternet.net with your actual hosted domain name provided that it already resolves properly to your turnkeyinternet.net hosting server.
