    I am on my second day of the PLESK experience, so this is pretty new to me - was with a differnet host with a home psun, very basic control panel.

    I am having some problems setting up and logging into FTP accounts for my various domains. I am going through the domain set up process, etc., choosing a username and password, but ...

    what do I set the hostname, and port to in my FTP app (coreFTP), I tried the domain I just set up, I tried the main domain, from which my name server is derived, nothing works. Same with the ports, active passive setting as well as trying it with SSH/SFTP on (and port set to 22 or 2200.

    Any idea what I am doing wrong here?

    You can configure FTP client to connect to your VPS IP until your domain(s) will become resolvable to your VPS. FTP service is running on the standard port (21) by default.
