File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a powerful tool that allows you to swiftly manage files on your hosting plan. Back up your sites, upload new files, and manage your web hosting files on the fly!

Most FTP client apps will work with this guide; we recommend the following clients for the following platforms:

Windows
Mac OS
Linux
iOS
Android

WinSCP or FileZilla

CyberDuck

FileZilla

FTPManager

Primitive FTPd

Note: FileZilla is free & open source software under the GPLv2 or later.

Important Information for Connecting

FieldInformation
HostnameThe IP address specified in the top left in the web panel (step 2)
UsernameYour created FTP username (below)
PasswordYour created FTP password (below)
Port21



Step 1: Create an FTP User Account

Login to the web panel and navigate to the dashboard. Click FTP.

click on FTP >thisisjustarandomplaceholder<If the speed is the game, then we are the name.


You have a few options at the next screen.

  • Create FTP Account– will allow you to select a website and create FTP accounts under it.

  • Delete FTP Account– will allow you to delete a created FTP account.

  • List FTP Accounts– will allow you to manage each created account including resetting credentials.

For our purposes, we need to Create FTP Account. This will show the FTP account creation page. First, select a domain for the account, and fill in a Username, Password, and Path access (optional).

chrome 6PgkAjJc7x >thisisjustarandomplaceholder<If the speed is the game, then we are the name.

Success! Now under List FTP Accounts, you will see your newly created account as well as administration options for it.



Step 2: Login Using a Chosen Client

Once an account has been created, you can log in using an FTP client. For this example, we’re using WinSCP on Windows 10.

Begin by opening a new connection and populating the fields accordingly.

WinSCP PuRMMM0fx9 >thisisjustarandomplaceholder<If the speed is the game, then we are the name.

Important: The hostname for the connection is the IP address shown on the top left of the web panel in red

… and voila! You’re in, through the protocol power of FTP!

WinSCP 7LnF0to9WF >thisisjustarandomplaceholder<If the speed is the game, then we are the name.

A good majority of our industry participates in partnerships, contracts, and unfair scalping/arbitrage to resell you subpar servers. You never know who the actual owner of your server is, and sometimes neither does your “provider.”

FastCat is proud to own all of its hardware and the responsibility of maintaining/upgrading it. Our Tier 4 Datacenter shares server real estate with and has direct peering to Amazon, Microsoft, and Valve/Steam coupled with our uncompromising 10 Gbps port— which comes standard for all services.
