Hello,

I am going to transfer my affiliate boutique via FileZilla.

However I haven't pointed the DNS to the destination server yet. How shall I set host and login to make sure I can send the files to the destination ?

Tanks in advanced.

You can use the IP address or hostname of the destination server to connect through FTP client ( FileZilla ).

Using the IP address will ensure you're pointed to the correct system before DNS resolves. You can also use this to test the site on the new server before you switch the DNS using the details here:
