Can connect with filezilla


i read the tutorial about connecting to filezilla. i think i got my user and pw right but i cant connect .
what can i do?`


Login to your 000webhost account…Go to Settings – General
You wil find your FTP details.

If you forgot your Ftp password…you can reset


If you’re trying to connect via Filezilla…then use this as host,

Host :
Username: example
Password : Your Password


thats what i did. i already changed my ps twice. i cant connect :frowning:


What error you get…while trying to connect and also post screen shot of it?

Can you connect via 000webhost file manager


"timeout after 20sec …"in German :Zeitüberschreitung der Verbindung nach 20 Sekunden Inaktivität

via the file manager i can connect


Its an temp. issue…Try after Sometime.


I also had a similar question, I used those details but didn’t know what port to choose and I think that’s why it wasn’t letting me connect. Which port is it?


@bmc port is 21 . :slight_smile:


Same problem here, only connection is sporadic… sometimes it connects and sometimes not.
When cant connect, get following FileZilla message…

Status: Resolving address of
Status: Connecting to…
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message…
Response: 220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------

FileZilla - Site Manager (settings) per tutorial…

Port: ‘blank’ (also tried ‘21’ but no difference in results)

Like noted, password etc settings seem to work sometimes and not others.
Thoughts ?
Thank you.


Seems to be a few issues at the minute hopefully will be resolved in a few hours.


Username: james2 in my case
Password: obvious123

Click details

To get your FTP username


Thank you for the asap info.

Thats (your ‘screenshot’) the FileZilla screen message we see.

Am assuming our (‘akm’) FileZilla settings are correct and its more of a issue at this time ?


Yeah a 000webhost issue at this time from the looks of it :frowning:

As long as your host, username & password are correct it should let you in eventually :frowning:

Since the web based is not working I’m thinking they are working on it :frowning:


@akm FTP is working fine now!!!


I also have the same problem. A few times earlier I’ve been log in automatically, but then it requires log in info, I don’t know what’s wrong but I cant connect with my website name.


Thanks for the followup !
