How to Use Web FTP / browser-based FTP - IE

How to use browser-based FTP (also known as WebFTP or Web FTP) in Internet Explorer:


Input one of the following URLs into your Address Bar, replacing the credentials listed with your account information:

ftp://username:password@serverIPaddress/

- or -

ftp://username:password@domain.com/



*NOTE*: This will not work with additionally created FTP accounts or addon domain FTP accounts, as the browser will not accept two @ symbols in the URL. You must use an FTP program for these accounts.
