Critical error: could not connect to server

Website URL:

Error Message

While trying to connect to FTP, I get the message “Critical error: could not connect to server”

Other Information

I just signed up to Infinity 15mn ago, it was my first attempt FTP

working fine for me, if you still cant see it then clear your browser cache (history)!

even though the ftp functions it does take a while after signing up before the site becomes visible

btw did you upload your files to the hddocs directory ? because I only see the default welcome page ( index2.html) that was installed by infinityfree

Note that it can take up to 72hrs to fully activate your account.

Pls read…


I can’t upload since I have this error.

OK, 24hours now, I still have the error.

Did you copy the ftp username, password, and hostname and pasted at

I could log in now but after 10-20 seconds, I get:

Status: Verifying certificate…
Status: TLS connection established.
Status: Logged in
Status: Retrieving directory listing…
Status: Directory listing of “/” successful
Status: Retrieving directory listing of “/htdocs”…
Status: Directory listing of “/htdocs” successful
Response: 421 Timeout - try typing a little faster next time
Error: GnuTLS error -110 in gnutls_record_recv: The TLS connection was non-properly terminated.
Status: Server did not properly shut down TLS connection
Error: Could not read from socket: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted

This is expected.
You can start to upload your files…
