How do I enable SSH on my VPS?

By default, SSH is disabled by default on the VPS servers.  This default setting is configured due to security concerns as SSH allows a user restricted access to the VPS server.

Turn on SSH

  1. Login to your Control Panel.
  2. Click VPS.
  3. Click VPS Manager.
  4. Click the “+” symbol for the VPS you wish to use.
  5. Click the Reboot Server tab
  6. In the SSH Server box, click the Restart.
  7. The SSH service will now be enabled for your VPS
