What Is The Host name?


I’m trying to use Fetch to upload my index page. What is the Hostname? I think I have my Username figured out. I know the password. I just need the Hostname to connect.

domain.com or some programs like ftp.domain.com… or maybe even ftp://domain.com

(obviously change domain.com out for whatever it is for you)



If you go to the webpanel and look at Domains > Manage you will see the name of what server you are on (under “server” on the same line as “web”).

You can ftp to YOURSERVERSNAME.dreamhost.com and will be prompted for your login and password. From there, you will want to place your files inside the folder with your domain’s name (ex: YOURDOMAIN.com).
