The FTP Servers are Open All Night . . .
The process by which files are transferred to the web server is called File Transport Protocol (FTP). You have unlimited access to your Webtrix hosted website via FTP 24-hours a day. As such, you can create and maintain your web pages on your own computer and upload files to your web site at your leisure.
The information listed below is what you will need in order to connect to your website via FTP using on of the two methods below. In order to FTP, you will need your username, password, and FTP URL provided to you when you signed up. If you cannot find this information, please click here to create a trouble ticket or call us at 1.888.932.8749 today.
