Note: This is subject to change without notice as the software vendor may change the product. FTP over SSL is the preferred way to access your account in a secure manner.   (SFTP is not supported because you would require SSH (terminal) access and that is not what your shared cloud service has.)   All of your FTP accounts have the ability to access FTP over SSL.
