How to connect through SSH using PuTTY?

Before you connect with SSH, you need to create an SSH account. You can use the How to create an SSH account guide.

You can download PuTTY from the official website:
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Once PuTTY is installed on your computer, you can connect using your SSH details:
SSH host: yourdomain.com (use any hostname that is correctly hosted in your Control Panel -> Website Manager -> Domain Manager section)
Port: 2222 (the default SSH port 22 is not supported, so make sure you use 2222)

PuTTY

When you connect to the server, you will be asked for your login credentials:
Login: Your username (the SSH username is the same as your client ID)
Password: Your SSH password (the password you submitted, when you created your SSH account)

PuTTY-2

You should now be successfully connected!
