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.
