Getting started with FTP

If you already have an FTP program installed click here


      The process by which files are transferred from your local computer to the web server is called "FTP" (File Transport Protocol). As a Boot Networks customer you have access via FTP 24-hours a day. Some website creation programs incorporate FTP into their functions (ex:Netscape).  If your website software does not include FTP (upload) capabilities, or you do not use such software, you will need to use an FTP program to upload your files (ex: Ws-ftp).   If you need to download a FTP program please go HERE.  If you don't know your username and password you may obtain one by emailing

** Important Note Customers with Microsoft FrontPage extensions installed on their sites should use only the FrontPage publishing feature to transfer files (CLICK HERE TO LEARN HOW)Using regular FTP can corrupt the extensions, disabling the functionality of the FrontPage web and requiring that the site be deleted to reinstall the extensions.
