FTP Filezilla - 421 Sorry, cleartext sessions are not accepted on this server

Some times when you connect to the webhost via FileZilla you may encounter this error message.
"421 Sorry, cleartext sessions are not accepted on this server."

Solution:
Just add a ftpes:// before the domain name

Old One,
host : domain.com
username : xxx
pass : yyy
port : 21


Updated One,

host : ftpes://domain.com
username : xxx
pass : yyy
port : 21

Advanced Option,

Login to Web Host Manager
Go To : Service Configuration
Go To : FTP Server Configuration
Check that :
TLS Encryption Support : set to “Optional”

Try that, it will work. !
