FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host to another host over a TCP-based network, such as the Internet (Wikipedia).

To use FTP you will need a special program - an FTP client, e.g. Filezilla, CuteFTP, FTP Commander etc. A browser cannot be used for this purpose. You can get additional info on these and other programs with the help of search engines (Google, Yahoo! etc.).


Learn how to setup FTP on uCoz and connect using a FTP client (guide by TeamNiBiC)


1. Sign in to your Control Panel (http://example.ucoz.com/admin)

2. At the main page, click on FTP details.



3. A window will appear, where you will find: host, login and password. If you haven't set the password yet, click the link and set one.



4. Save the information or at least keep the window open for you to log in using your favorite client.

I recommend Filezilla, which can be found by Google: Filezilla download.

5. Install and launch the client and sign in with your information.


For FTP programs to work properly you should check your network settings, the settings of firewall and antivirus software.

It is desirable to look into the error log. If the connection to the server was established, an error will be clearly described. If there is no connection then there is something wrong with the network or client settings. You may often need to use the passive mode, if your ISP sets limitations.


ATTENTION!


To establish an FTP connection you should observe the following conditions:

1. Your e-mail must be confirmed.
2. Your website must be at least 2 hours old (sometimes up to 24 hours) for FTP to work.
3. The installed security programs must not forbid FTP connection.
4. The passive mode must be selected.
5. Enter the data into your FTP client manually, and not by means of copy&paste.

Static .htm and .html files should be uploaded via File Manager. Static files are not very welcome at uCoz. If you need them more then 10 you have chosen a wrong hosting.


COMMON RULES FOR FTP AND FILE MANAGER


- The max size of a file to upload is 15 Mb.
- The max length of a file name with extension is 45 characters.
- One nesting level can have not more than 200 files and folders (max nesting depth is 4).
- A file name can contain only Latin letters, digits, an underscore and a hyphen.

FireFTP works just fine in all of my other accounts. I see no reason for it to not work here.

I used to use Filezilla. But about 2 years ago they added a lot of stuff to the options menu that I didn't understand. So I deleted it. I wasn't willing to spend a week relearning it. Why make things harder than they have to be?

addons, you must confirm the registration e-mail to get FTP work.
uCoz doesn't have any problems with FTP... read FTP help on the main page of the Control Panel.

Re-upload them to the sites FTP, I guess.

It's the space in file name.

My ftp just started working out of no where, but where am i suppose to upload to? There's no public_html. And the reason i don't want the file manager is because it cant upload a lot at once...

fozz, you think uCoz is a standard hosting - this is not so.

1. uCoz is the CMS for creating dynamic projects (not for static .html files).
2. public_html is just a standard name of a folder in web-server, and it may have any other name as admin wants (www, public, html etc).
3. after you have connected via FTP you are in public_html folder at once.

Your mind is not transformed for using new generation of web creating technology yet, so choose any of old style hostings and upload your files there.
