SFTP is available on all hPanel plans, which have SSH access included (Premium and above hosting packages). Here is how to connect to your hosting account by SFTP:

Step 1 - Preparations

The first thing you will need to do is enable 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 the SSH Access section:

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

  • User: FTP/SSH 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,

  • Port: 65002

  • Logon type: Normal

  • User: FTP/SSH Username

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

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