FTP Accounts

All FastVirtual web hosting plans include one or more FTP accounts as standard, ranging from 1 for our Silver hosting package, up to 26 for our Platinum Plus hosting package.

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the method used for uploading files to your domain. Files can be uploaded from your computer or local server to your domain using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or WS_FTP. These applications can also be used to change permissions, rename files and directories and more.

FastVirtual also supports other upload/management methods, including Microsoft FrontPage, and Webby, FastVirtual's web-based file/domain management software.

FTP accounts are managed through the FTP management system, available from the "Hosting" area of the account control panel.

For further information, please see the FTP Guide.
