…and am not sure of the ftp hostname. I believe the ftp username and passwords are the ones I use to log in but am not sure of the hostname. It gives me the following errors.


FTP hostname —–> mydomainname.com
FTP username —–> (the username I use to log in)
FTP password —–> (the password I use to log in)
Error message —–> Could not login to the FTP server. Please check the settings and try again.

I've also tried:

FTP hostname —–> (the ip address I got from the account summary)
FTP username —–> the username I use to log in@mydomainname.com
FTP password —–> (the password I use to log in)
Error message —–> Could not connect to the server (if one exists) at (the ip address I got from the account summary)


FTP hostname —–> the username I use to log in@mydomainname.com
FTP username —–> (the username I use to log in)
FTP password —–> (the password I use to log in)
Error message —–> Could not connect to the server (if one exists) at the username I use to log in@mydomainname.com

Am I using the wrong information?

I'd try with your own FTP program, I'm sure GoDaddy can provide more support on their FTP settings than we can, and an FTP program will provide more error feedback.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
