The FTP details you need for your FTP client are:

  • Host: your main domain
  • Port: 21
  • User name: your cPanel user name
  • Password: your cPanel password


Example: In this example, the main domain is example.x10hosting.com, the cPanel user name is user and the cPanel password is pass.

This is how you'd set the client up:

  • Host: example.x10hosting.com
  • Port: 21
  • User name: user
  • Password: pass


If you do not know your main domain or your cPanel user name - you can find them - in the Account Portal
