There are a few common reasons why you may not be able to connect successfully via FTP.
If you’ve not switched the nameservers to point to CreateTheWeb, you’ll need to use a different hostname to connect via FTP:
Or, use our alternative FTP host:
If you’ve made any DNS changes you need to make sure that you have a CNAME from:
ftp.yourdomain.com -> CNAME ->
ftp.yourdomain.com (or wordpressftp.yourdomain.com on the WordPress platform).
Without this CNAME you won’t be able to connect using ftp.yourdomain.com.
Please note DNS changes can take roughly 1 hour to propagate.
At CreateTheWeb we utilise an FTP lock system to ensure FTP can only be accessed when required which greatly reduces the risk of compromise to a hosting package. You'll need to make sure this is unlocked to connect via FTP, to do this:
When FTP has been unlocked you'll be shown the time the unlock expires and the option to lock it again.
Make sure you are using the correct password! You’ll need to use the password that is located within the FTP Details section of the package.
