For security reasons, we allow SFTP access via SSH keys by default. To enable password based SFTP/SSH login, please follow the simple steps below.

In this guide we will first enable the SFTP/SSH password, and then use this password to connect to your site with a SFTP client like FileZilla, Cyberduck and by SSH via the Terminal. You can also connect with browser based SSH in our panel and we'll show you that as well.
