Accessing your VPS or Dedicated Servers using SSH
Posted by on 30 June 2014 07:12 AM

What is Secure Shell (SSH)?
Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol typically used to log into a remote machine and execute commands. It can transfer files using the associated SSH file transfer (SFTP) or secure copy (SCP) protocols. The standard port used to connect through SSH is 22.

Connecting to your VPS or Dedicated servers using SSH is very easy. Here’s how you do it:

  1. If you’re using a Windows machine, download PuTTY

  2. Run Putty

  3. Enter your VPS package IP Address that you should’ve got in your email from us. If you don’t have the email handy, just check the GIF image below to find it

  1. Click on "Open"

  2. This will now open the PuTTY terminal and prompt you for your username

  3. Enter your root username or root password. (You get your root password on your hosting purchase email)

  4. Hit Enter

There you go. You’ve logged in to your VPS or Dedicated servers using SSH in just 2 minutes. :)
