Support » Fixing WordPress » Add-on domains, multiple hosts, and FTP

  • OK. So. We have 2 hosts and 2 domains. Host A is the registrar for and (fake domians obviously). Host B has our currently running website, so we have set up to be on Host B’s nameservers (but still registered with Host A). We are developing a wordpress substitute for our website, which is being developed on

    My problem is that our FTP doesn’t work. If I put in the FTP for, it doesn’t go through (no idea why), and is directed, correctly, to Host B’s servers!
    Is there any way for WordPress to edit files and such without FTP?

  • Hi, first of all, you should never use http when connecting to ftp, but or Best of all is to install FTP client like FileZilla, write / in Host, ftp user/pass and connect.
    Another solution is web based File Manager, which comes with most web hosting control panels.
    If you’re using cPanel as a control panel and need to transfer full WP sites with their databases etc. you can easily create full-site backup in cPanel and ask your hosting provider to migrate to the new server/domain.
