To connect to your server/HostedFTP account, you’ll need 3 pieces of information:

  2. Username (or email address)
  3. Password

How to Connect

  1. Open Cyberduck and click the Site Manager icon.
  2. Input your hostname, username and password login credentials (by default you can always use ftp.hostedftp.com as the hostname).

  3. Select your protocol using the drop down menu at the top of the interface.
  4. Click “Connect” and click “Allow” to the unknown hostkey to gain access to your remote site.
    Check, “Always trust this host, add this key to cache” if you want to save the hostkey to bypass the “unknown host key” notification in the future.


How to Transfer

  1. Right click the file you want to download and selected download.
  2. Highlight the file(s) you want to download and click the download icon.
  3. Click the upload icon and select the file(s) or folder(s) you want to upload.
