SFTP: Access Your Webspace Easily and Securely

SFTP provides you with encrypted and secure access to your webspace and allows you to perform tasks such as installing WordPress manually or creating a backup. We have revised the FTP settings from the ground up to make SFTP as easy to use as possible:

All connection data and recommended FTP programs in one place: User name, assigned directories, FTP server, protocol and port.

ftp-settings-overviewSet up secure FTP access: We help you find a secure password. Personal notes allow you to store brief information about a user, e.g. role, tasks, customer or project.

ftp-settings-create-userEasily configure FTP programs: Easily download the appropriate configuration files and import the correct file to your FTP program.


If you are managing FTP access for a team, you can now send FTP credentials directly to your users by e-mail.

Download recommended FTP programs: Our team regularly tests the most popular FTP programs. You can download the best programs directly and securely in the 1&1 Control Panel.

    What the hell have you done to my computer and files? I can not access our files. I downloaded a program called Flash Zilla and it does nothing. I met with Carl Clemons last night and we decided to cancel and go with another provider. I am the web master for our club Portsmouth Amateur Radio Club

      Hi Joseph,

      please keep in mind that we offer secure FTP on Windows hosting with FTPs, not SFTP. Here you find basic informations how to setup your FTP client with FTPs: http://help.1and1.com/hosting-c37630/webspace-and-access-c85098/ftp-c37631/ftps-connection-credentials-a781853.html
