With our web hosting packages, you can use SFTP to upload the files to your website. In this article you'll learn how to upload the files of your website using SFTP filemanagement in your control panel.
Open SFTP filemanagement
Log on to the control panel, go to the tab 'Domains & Hosting' and select your domain name in the column to the left (don't check the box). Next to 'Your website', click on the cog wheel, followed by 'SFTP filemanagement'.
You will now see an overview of the folders of the website(s) that are present on your web hosting package. This overview is the home folder, for technical reasons no new folders or files can be added.
