Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

Enable SSH

SSH is a secure method of connecting to your hosting account to upload files, move files, and execute commands. Customers using paid Linux shared hosting accounts can enable it.

When you enable SSH, it is enabled for the primary FTP user associated to the account.

To Enable SSH on Your Linux Shared Hosting Account

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  3. Click SSH Access.
  4. Click Enable.

You can now log in to cPanel using your primary FTP user's login information (more info).

For more information, see Connect to your server or shared hosting account with SSH.
