  2. Enter the address of the server in the field Host, located in the Quickconnect bar.
    - (sftp://ipaddress  - make sure to enter sftp to connect securely via SFTP)
  3. Enter your username
    - (example.com - keep it lowercase and without "www.")
  4. Enter your password
    - (the one you chose for SSH in your Control Panel)
