Publishing with WS_FTP (Windows)

WS_FTP is a popular FTP client for Windows that we support. If you do not have the latest version of WS_FTP, it can be found here. A popular free FTP program is Filezilla which can be found here.

Note: The following instructions are for WS_FTP Limited Edition only. Users of WS_FTP Pro (or any other FTP client) should refer to their FTP software's documentation to learn how to upload Web Pages. If you are behind a firewall, you may need to check with your network administrator for instructions on how to connect.

To upload your Web pages and images using the WS_FTP program for Windows, follow these steps:

  1. Launch the WS_FTP software program.

  2. To set up a session profile, click the New button.

  3. Change the General information for your connection.
    You may use any name for Profile Name.
    Type in the Host Name/Address box.
    The Host Type should be set to Automatic Detect.
    Under UserID, enter site administratorname#fulldomain name.
    Under Password, enter your password.

    If you are unsure what your UserID or Password are, call us at 914-941-3616 or refer to the Welcome Letter you received from us.
