Updated Apr 29th, 2021 at 13:48 BST

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 for managing 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 guide helps you find your SFTP credentials. If you already know your SFTP username, password, hostname and port you can simply install FileZilla and then connect to the server.

Log in to your TsoHost Client Area account. Navigate to Services -> My Services -> select the Managed WordPress service -> click on Login to Server From the Dashboard to the right, navigate to Tools -> finally click on Copy nex to SFTP login.

This will copy your Hostname and Username. In order for the password to be cpued you would need to click on Copy next to SFTP/SSH password

You'll need these to log in with your FTP client. If you haven't done this yet, download, install and launch FileZilla.

Complete the following fields:

    What to enter...

    Your Hostname

    Your SFTP User Name

    Your SFTP Password


Select Quickconnect. After FileZilla connects to your account, you can drag-and-drop to upload your files to the appropriate location.
