Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

Connect to my Linux Hosting account with SSH (Secure Shell)

After you enable SSH (Secure Shell) protocol for your Linux Hosting account, you can connect via SSH using a client. We recommend using PuTTy (Windows), Terminal (Mac), or OpenSSH (Linux).

To connect via SSH, you need this information:

Got all that info? Let's get started!

  1. Launch the SSH client.
  2. Enter the following information:
    Field What to enter...
    Host Your domain name or IP address
    Username Your FTP username
    Password Your FTP password
    Port 22

  3. After entering the necessary information in the SSH client, you'll be able to establish a connection to your hosting account.

Note: The SSH client you use will determine the exact steps for connecting to your shared hosting account.
