Upload files with SFTP

You can upload files to your Managed WordPress account with SFTP. You can use any FTP client to do this, such as FileZilla. This is useful if you need to do large file uploads to your WordPress site, or if you want to make changes to your WordPress site manually - such as installing a custom theme or plugin.

Note: The first part of this procedure gets you to your SFTP credentials. If you already know your SFTP hostname, port, username, and password, start with Step 6.

  1. Log in to your ITEGY account.
  2. In your My Products page, next to Managed WordPress, click Manage All.
  3. Choose the set of instructions for the type of hosting manager you are using.

Note: If you're not sure what type of hosting manager you are using, see What type of hosting manager am I using?.
