How do I connect to my web space using SSH?

You need an SSH client on your computer.

  • On Mac you can use Terminal which is included by default.
  • On Windows-based computers you can install a third-party application like PuTTY.

When connecting via SSH use this info:

Host: ssh.example.com
Username: example.com
Password: the one you chose for SSH in your Control Panel
Port: 22

Remember to replace example.com with your own domain.

Connect to your web space via an SSH client:

  1. Open your SSH client
  2. Type ssh example.com@ssh.example.com
    (replace example.com with your own domain)
  3. If this is the first time you are connecting, confirm the authenticity of the host by typing yes
  4. Enter your password. Please note that you will not see any characters typed or your cursor moving. This is a standard security feature for terminals.
  5. Press Enter

Everything is now ready for you to start typing commands.
