Hello and welcome to Digitalocean

Here you go :

Host: sftp://Your_IP
User: root (or your username)
Password: Your password
  • Thank you eldin! I get logged in now! But where is the "public_html" folder? Only have root folder with some folders with name strange... Where I upload my sites?

  • Where I get my username and pass? Where I can configure it?

  • How I can create new FTP accounts with a restricted access (by folders)?
    Thank you!

@nayara you save your Data here /var/www/html

We do not provide any droplet images with FTP running by default as it is an inherently insecure protocol. SFTP is running on all new droplets on port 22 and can be accessed with your root login credentials using Filezilla. When logging in as root you will start out in the /root directory but will have access to access any directory you require.

@nayara this depends on the Webserver you installed and the Operating System you use. I need more information to help you
