You just need to install the FileZilla software on your computer

Then obtain the login details from Websites -> SiteManager -> Details

You do not need to contact SiteSupport to do this

Hi Chrys. Great, thanks. I want to upload files to my website and have Filezilla installed on computer, do I still need Filezilla downloaded onto my site or can I just transfer via public folder?

You don’t need to install anything on to your website/server to use FTP via FileZilla

What kind of files do you need to upload, as it’s very rare that you need to do this via FTP when using WordPress, as it has its own built in system for media etc.

Files so visitors can download a free report, so I can then capture their emails

You might be better off with a plugin to control these downloads, so that they can’t be leached and so that you can view stats as well.

This is a good one that I’ve used, there are others as well. But this has over 100k installs, updated frequently and fully tested with the latest version of WordPress.
