Transferring Files with FileZilla via SFTP

For 1&1 IONOS Linux hosting packages with Webspace

Click here for the Secure FTP article applicable to 1&1 IONOS Windows hosting packages.

Transfer files to the web space of your 1&1 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 1&1 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.
