FTP Filezilla (Windows)

TO DOWNLOAD/INSTALL AND UPLOAD YOUR WEBSITE USING FILEZILLA IN MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP / VISTA / 7 / 8

IMPORTANT!

Filezilla stores passwords in plain text. While Filezilla is free software and you are welcome to use it we do recomend that a more secure FTP client is used to connect to your webspace - Try WS FTP


Helpful Hint!

Before you start you will need to have your hostname, FTP username and FTP password which can be found in your online control panel or welcome documentation.
