I have setup SSH in console but what is the process for your cloud hosting to get access to SFTP in GUI mode via filezilla. Or is there any possibility I can get access to GUI Cpanel. Hosting is CENTOS 1GB with Magento Installed on it.

We do not provide any pre-configured control panel software to run on your droplet. You can install any control panel you like yourself however (note that most panel software requires a clean install and will not take over already installed services).

For SFTP access, this should work out of the box with filezilla using the following:

Server: Your droplet’s IP
Port: 22
Protocol: SFTP
User: root
Password: Your root password

The default path for the root user is /root but you will not be locked in there. You can change up a directory .. to reach the root directory of your disk and navigate from there.
