What is SFTP ?
SFTP is an interactive file transfer program, similar to ftp, which performs all operations over an encrypted ssh transport.
Why is SFTP better than FTP?
SFTP & FTP are two different protocols. In FTP all data is passed back and forth between the client and server without the use of encryption. As the data are transmitted over an unencrypted session, hacker can retrieve your confidential information including login details. With SFTP all the data is encrypted before it is sent across the network.
Use the following details to access your SFTP account in FTP client software:
sftp://hostname or IP address
Username: cPanel Username
Password: cPanel Password
