Uploading Content

You can upload content to your hosting account using FTPs or the Plesk File Manager.


To access your account via FTP, refer to the Service Activation email we sent to you - this will contain the server URL, username and password for your FTP account. If you cannot locate your Service Activation email, you can retrieve your FTP username from the Plesk Panel (go to Websites & Domains -> Web Hosting Access). You can also reset your password in My WP NET.

Please note that only encrypted FTPs connections are supported, standard FTP will not work.

For more information, please see FTP Access.

PERFORMANCE TIP: if you have hundreds or thousands of files to transfer to a WP NET server, do not upload individually using FTPs, instead, create a .zip archive and upload that. Then, use the Plesk File Manager Extract command to unzip the contents on the server.

Plesk File Manager

Plesk Panel provides an easy to use file manager which you can use to upload content to your server. It also includes a few other useful functions:

  1. Using Calculate Size you can get a very good overview of where your disk space is being used.
  2. Create and Extract Zip archives with the Extract Files and Add to Archive commands
  3. A code editor with syntax highlighting
  4. A basic HTML editor
