HOST FTP command

Updated February 11, 2019


This article describes the use of the Host (HOST) FTP command.


All Serv-U versions


The HOST command specifies what domain on a server the client is connecting to. Serv-U supports the use of Virtual Hosts to configure more than one domain on the same listener - in this case, Serv-U relies on the HOST command to determine what domain a client is connecting to. If the client does not issue the HOST command when connecting to the server, Serv-U will use the first domain configured on that listener.
