How to Connect to Your Account Over sFTP

Updated on Aug 6, 2021

sFTP stands for SSH File Transfer Protocol (also Secure File Transfer Protocol, or SFTP) which means that you can access FTP via SSH. The FTP connection is via Secured Shell and you do not need to purchase SSL certificate to connect via SSH.

To use sFTP on our servers, there are two things that you need to do first:

  • You need to download request SSH access to your account as it will be needed for sFTP connection. You can submit a new ticket for such a request via your Client Area.
  • You need to configure your FTP client for the connection.

We offer an excellent range of tutorials on how to configure FTP client. They will guide you through the process.
