How to set FileZilla to connect to your hosting account

FileZilla is an open source FTP (FTPS, SFTP) client with which you can connect to your account through FTP.

After you download and install FileZilla on your local computer, make sure you have created an FTP user. You can do that from the FTP Usernames section of the Pixie control panel.

Then start FileZilla, go to the File menu and select Site Manager (or press Ctrl+S). There click on New Site, in the field for Host type your domain (e.g., set the Logon Type to Normal and in the fields for User and Password type the ones for the particular FTP user you want to use. After that click on the Transfer Settings tab and for Transfer mode mark Passive. When you are done click on Connect.

You can also use the Quickconnect bar which, as the name suggest, is faster since you only need to type your domain and the user name and password for the FTP user.
