    How to connect your website with SFTP over SSH

    Before to start, check that your hosting company supports SFTP connexion

    The ftp client I'm using in this tutorial is FlashFXP


    Connect to your cPanel

    1) Create a SSH key

    In this step, the important points are to use your cPanel username as connexion username and to use the correct port for sftp connexion (for example: 1291)

    6) End
    You should now be able to connect to your website now without typing any password but still being secured
