Congratulations! Your SSH account has been created successfully.

How to Establish an SSH Connection to the Server?

In order to establish an SSH connection, you must have an SSH client program installed on your computer/device. If you do not have an SSH software application, we recommend PuTTY.

Once you have installed the program, you will be able to connect to your server using the following SSH login details:

SSH host: (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)
