How to access your Hosting service using Filezilla

How to access your Hosting service through Filezilla

To access and transfer your files you will need to download an FTP client, a program that connects to the remote FTP server and manages the sending/receiving of files. The most popular FTP client is FileZilla. It is a free and easy-to-use FTP manager available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X operating systems.

Downloading and installing Filezilla

SW Hosting never recommends downloading applications from untrusted sites. The best option is to download the program directly from the Filezilla official website.

Once you are on the official site, go to FileZilla -> Download:
