EasyWP: How to access your WordPress website folders and files via SFTP
Security of your websites is one of our top priorities. At EasyWP, in order to ensure data transferring over a secure and encrypted connection, we support only SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol).
To connect over SFTP, you can use the FileZilla FTP client or another one of your choosing.
