SSH, (Secure Shell) is a tool used to securely connect to another computer over a network. Unlike plain connections, SSH encrypts all communication between the two devices. You can also use the SSH port (22) in your FTP client to connect via SFTP.

SSH with password authentication.

I’d recommend using the PuTTY SSL client for SSH in Windows. Or the Filzilla FTP client for SFTP.

  1. Login to your hosting control panel.
  2. Click on the website you wish to SSH into.
  3. Click AdvancedDeveloper tools, click SSH password authentication.
  4. Click Reset next to Password to set your new SSH password. I’d recommend using the built in secure password generator by clicking the key icon. Make a note of this password.
  5. Below Login command you will see the details you need to use. Depending on the client you are using to connect, you could just copy and paste this in, then enter your password, but I will break down the details of the login command.
    Example command:

    ssh -p 22 youruser@

    SSH = The protocol you are using
    -p 22 = The Port you want to connect to
    youruser = Your username = The host you are connecting to
