How do I connect via SSH to my server?

Updated 3 months ago by Theo Chu

In order to connect via SSH to your server, you can use PuTTY. PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 and Unix platforms. Use the following steps to use PuTTY:

  1. Download putty.exe and install it
  2. Double-click on the icon of the program you have downloaded
  3. Use port 22 (if you need to connect to a different port, simply change the number)
  4. Enter the domain name under Host
  5. Click on the Open button to connect 

The first time, you will be presented with a security alert. Click OK, then type your username and password when prompted.

PuTTY can be downloaded here.
