Using Filezilla to Upload Files to the Web

TheFrog , Florida, USA – Run Away! – I own hundreds of sites and host some more for my clients. For some reason, I had the stupid idea to sign up with those people (can’t call them a hosting company) and host a couple of sites on their servers. That was the worst decision I could ever have made and the worst two weeks of hosting I have ever had. As everybody else said: servers going down, no reliable tech support, canned answers, rude answers, you name it, if it’s bad they do it. Don’t even stay away from them, run away, as fast as you can! PS: I chose a 1 star rating because it’s the lowest. Would have chosen -10 if it had been a choice!

This tutorial teaches how to use Filezilla to upload to the web. It was created by Matt Overwine part of the Instructional Design group at Northern Kentucky University.

    How do you figure out your user login and password? I'm doing this for YouTube, so it's not exactly a domain that I OWN and PAID for so I don't have something like that that I know of??

    I am trying to upload a large file to my media into wordpress. How do I upload a file that I want to use from the media on the side bar in wordpress. I tried to drag and drop files in the new filezilla and it uploaded but when I go to my media on the side bar the file is not there. Am I uploading the wrong place?

    hi folks, i was having the same issue of filezilla not connecting to the server correctly, I inserted the IP address instead of the website name for the the host form and it connected from there.
