How to set WinSCP to connect to your hosting account

WinSCP is a free FTP, FTPS, SFTP, SCP client. It runs on Windows.

You can download it from the official site where you can also learn more about its features.

Here we'll set it to connect through FTP. After you download and install it, check from the FTP Usernames section of the Pixie control panel whether you have created an FTP user.

Then start WinSCP and in the WinSCP Login panel enter your domain name in the Host name field, in the User name and Password fields type the name and password for the FTP user. From the drop-down menu select FTP. After that click on Save, so that you can use the same account later, and then click on Login.

That's all you have to do to connect to your account.

You can also check our WinSCP tutorial for more information on how to configure it.
