A guide and tutorial to using an FTP for Windows

 Several people who I lend webspace to have had trouble using the FTP connection. Therefore, I've written a hopefully easy-to-understand tutorial and guide to using the FTP. Different hosts/servers may vary, but it is generally about the same. Just change the address to whatever your ftp would be. Using the FTP is simple.

2) A window should pop up as shown below. Click OK.

Logging In

5) This is it! Upload your files here. They will be found in your domain. Folders show up as a directory, such as

Some users may also want to add the FTP location as a drive under My Computer (like a thumbdrive), which you can do using these directions: How to Set Up FTP Using Default Network Location
