How do I connect to an SFTP server with FileZilla?

Before you start, you will need to enable SSH access in your Control Panel.

  1. Open FileZilla
  2. Enter the address of the server in the field Host, located in the Quickconnect bar.

    (sftp.example.com - make sure to enter sftp to connect securely via SFTP)

  3. Enter your username

    (example.com - keep it lowercase and without "www.")

  4. Enter your password

    (the one you chose for SSH in your Control Panel)

  5. Enter the port number.

    (port 22 for SFTP)

  6. Click on Quickconnect or press Enter to connect to the server.
  7. Click OK when you get a warning about an unknown host key.

Remember to replace example.com with your own domain.
