Connecting to your account
Connecting to your new shared hosting account is easy. To upload files to your shared hosting account you would usually use an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program.
If you don't have one of these already please download and install an FTP client onto your computer, you may wish to download a free copy of SmartFTP.
Then simply enter the following details from your welcome email into the FTP client:*
- Host Name / Address: ftp.myserverworld.net (windows) or ftp2.myserverworld.net (linux)
- Username: eg. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Password: eg. 6w07PwnL
- Port (if requested): 21
If you are using SmartFTP you will also need to set the data connection mode to "Active" - you can find this option in the tools > settings menu [see screenshot].
