What is SFTP?
SSH File Transfer Protocol is one of the most popular methods of securely transferring files to remote servers.
We recommend you zip the files you want to upload to your server, uploading individual files through SFTP can take a long time. Once you have uploaded the .zip file to your server, you can go to the file manager in our Godlike Panel, click on the button Extract of the .zip.
More Actions like compress, extract, rename, and others
If you wish to archive, unarchive or mass delete files, please check out or on file management through the panel.
To find the login details, navigate to the sidebar of the server, then open the 'Settings' section.
Here you will be able to see your server's SFTP host IP address and port as well as your username! Your SFTP password is the same as your game panel password.
