Enable SSH (Secure Shell) access
You can enable SSH (Secure Shell) protocol to provide 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.
Note: When you enable SSH, it is enabled for the primary FTP user associated to the account. You may be required to update the primary FTP user's password before enabling SSH.
- Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
- From the Hosting Control Center home page, click the More menu and then select SSH.
- Click Enable and SSH is now enabled.
Note: It can take up to 72 hours for SSH to be fully enabled for your account. During this time, you might not be able to access the account via SSH.
