Transferring Files with FileZilla via SFTP

For IONOS Linux hosting packages with Webspace

Click here for the Secure FTP article applicable to IONOS Windows hosting packages.

Transfer files to the web space of your IONOS hosting package with FileZilla.

By uploading or downloading files, you update elements of your Internet presence, such as HTML files and photos.

  • Open FileZilla.
  • If you have already saved your SFTP connection data in FileZilla Server Manager, open it via File > Server Manager and click Connect. Alternatively, you can enter the connection data manually via the quick bar. For servers, enter the IONOS FTP server. Then comes your FTP username and password. For the port, please specify 22 (for a secure connection). Then click Connect.

  • Wait until you are connected to the server. You have now established an encrypted and secure connection to the server and can work with FileZilla.
  • You will now see the directories and files on your computer on the left and the files and folders on your web space on the right.
    To upload a file, simply select the folder in which the file is located in the left window. Then click on the file you want to upload.
    Note: Downloading files works in almost the same way, except that you select the desired file in the right pane instead of the left pane.
  • In the right pane, select a folder to move the file to. Drag the file you want to upload to the right pane (using Drag & Drop)

The desired file will now be uploaded to your web space.
