For IONOS Windows hosting packages
IONOS Windows Hosting uses the encrypted FTPS (FTP over SSL) to transfer your files securely to your webspace.
To avoid having to enter your connection data for each FTP session, you can save it in WinSCP. Then one click will allow you to establish a new connection.
Click New Site and complete all required information. Then click Save.
|Encryption||TLS/SSL Explicit Encryption or TLS/SSL Implicit Encryption|
|Host name||The IONOS subdomain can be viewed in the IONOS|
|User name||Your FTPS user name|
|Password||Your FTPS password|
Enter a name for the connection, then click OK to save the account data for the FTP connection.
For your security, we advise against using the Save password option, because WinSCP saves this password in plain-text.
You can now click the name of the site to establish the connection.
Make sure to set the passive mode in the FTP connection data in the server manager. The number of simultaneous connections should be limited to a maximum of 4 on the Transfer Settings tab.
