We do provide Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) access with our Premium and above hosting packages. SFTP provides a completely secure file transfer from your local computer to your website’s server.

Step 1 - Preparations

The first thing you will need to do is enabling SSH access. It can be done from your SSH Access page in hPanel.

Step 2 - Connecting

You can easily connect to SFTP by following one of the options below:

Option 1 - Direct access

Open FileZilla:

Set the configuration you got from SSH Access section:

  • Host: FTP IP from SSH Access section (for example sftp://185.185.185.185)

  • User: FTP Username

  • Port: 65002

Click on Quickconnect - and you will be connected to FTP server 😊

Option 2 - Site manager

Unlike Direct access, with Site Manager, you are able to save your previous connection details, as well as change the encryption type.

Open Site Manager in FileZilla:

Click New Site:

Select SFTP connection:

Set the configuration you got from SSH Access section:

  • Protocol: SFTP - SSH File Transfer Protocol

  • Host: FTP IP from FTP Accounts section (for example, 185.185.185.185)

  • Port: 65002

  • Logon type: Normal

  • User: FTP Username

Click on Connect - and you will be connected to FTP server 😊

That’s it! Now you know how to connect to your account via SFTP.
