In this article, you will learn:

FTP Login Credentials

FTP clients, such as WebFTP, require these 3 credentials for login:

  • The FTP server address assigned to your service. It consists of a six-digit identification number, the server name and the wedos.net domain, for example 123456.w78.wedos.net.
  • Your username consisting of the letter w, a six-digit number identical to the number in the address, and in the case of a secondary account, also an additional name. Username examples: w123456 (main account), w123456_webmaster (secondary account).
  • Your Password, which can be either generated by the system, or set during account creation (for more information, see Webhosting – FTP Accounts).

For more information about FTP accounts, see Webhosting – FTP Accounts.

Accessing FTP Login Information

When creating the Webhosting service, the system, among other things, creates a main FTP account and sends you its login crednetials in an email notification. The system also sends login credentials by email whenever you create a new FTP account.

Once set up, you cannot change FTP account credentials, except for the password. You can change your password in the customer administration panel.

Service or Account Creation Email Notification

You can find the default login information for the main FTP account in the Webhosting creation email notification. The subject is Webhosting created – domain.tld [1234567890], where domain.tld is the (sub)domain of your Webhosting, followed by a unique service number. The email is sent by the system from hosting@wedos.com.

When setting up a new FTP account, you will also receive an email notification from hosting@wedos.com, containing the server, login and password information for that specific account.

If you cannot find the email with the login information, update it through the customer administration panel.

Customer Administration Panel

If you don’t know your FTP account password, update it according to this guide.

You can find out the server address and username in the customer administration panel. Follow these steps:

  1. Log into the customer administration panel.
  2. In the navigation bar, go to Web & Email Hosting Webhosting or WMS.
  3. From the list of services, select the Webhosting whose FTP credentials you want to find out.
  4. In the Service details in the FTP table, click the name of the account with which you want to log into FTP.
  5. Copy the FTP server and login information. Change the password if necessary.
