To properly install your site I always need FTP (File Transfer Protocol) information. Using FTP allows me access to the actual place the site resides……..
1.Host and Port.
every site has to reside somewhere. sometimes the host is a site name like: example.com, or an ip address like: 188.8.131.52. also sometimes different hosts require a certain port. if so you need to get that too.
every host has a manner in which they require communication. that’s called the protocol – there’s many (and if you’re hosted by amazon it’s not listed!) but the key ones are listed.
again there are many methods of encryption, but the most popular encryption methods are listed.
it’s ubiquitous, every account has a user name.
and every username has a password!
