Access your Ultra service with WebDAV

In this guide, we will show you how to access your Ultra service via the WebDAV protocol. For more information, follow this link.

Before you can use WebDAV, you need to reinstall your webserver. It can be done from the Overview tab on the UCP.

WebDAV is currently offered as a beta feature, and if it is deemed to disrupt our infrastructure, it will be removed from our service without notice.

Do note, data transferred over WebDAV WILL count towards your upload bandwidth quota.

Configure Network Drive

Windows

Note: Windows Explorer WebDAV mapped drives limit the maximum file size to approx, 4GB. If you intend to copy or stream files larger than that, please use an Rclone mount or other WebDAV client.

You will now see your Ultra.cc home path mounted at the drive letter you selected in the previous steps. If you selected Remember my credentials then your WebDAV mount will automatically be remounted upon restarting your Windows machine.
