2.10.3. SSH connection

To connect from the hosting server to third-party servers, open the necessary ports in the settings outgoing connections.

Notes:

  • The web client works directly in the browser. When using it, you do not need to add your IP to permitted, enter a password or run any additional software.
  • When connecting through the section "SSH access" you will be taken to the root directory of the hosting account, when connecting through the section "My sites" — directly to the root directory of the corresponding site.

Open the section "Hosting → SSH access" and opposite "WebSSH" click "Connect":Or open the section "My sites" and in the site menu click "SSH":

  1. Make sure your IP is added to list of allowed and at least 15 minutes have passed since the addition
  2. Run the standard command:
    ssh example@example.ftp.tools

    Instead example and example.ftp.tools use login and host from SSH connection data.

  3. When the connection is established, enter the SSH user password (you can change it on the page SSH connection data). Warning! For security reasons, in Linux systems, when entering a password or pasting it from the clipboard, characters are not displayed on the screen.

PuTTY is a free SSH and telnet client. You can download the current version at official website.

  1. Make sure your IP is added to list of allowed and at least 15 minutes have passed since the addition
  2. Download and run PuTTY.
  3. Specify connection settings:
    • "Host Name (or IP address)" - instead of example.ftp.tools specify host from SSH connection data.
    • "Port" — make sure the default port is specified 22.
    • "Connection type" — make sure the switch is set opposite "SSH".
  4. Clickon "Open".
  5. If a warning is displayed, it means that the server key is not in the PuTTY cache (this is typical for the first connection) or has changed. To connect, click "Yes" or "No":
    • "Yes" - connect and add the key of the current server to the PuTTY cache (on subsequent connections, the warning will no longer be displayed until the PuTTY cache is cleared or the server key is changed).
    • "No" - connect without saving the key in the PuTTY cache (the next time you connect, the warning will be displayed again).
    • "Cancel" - do not connect and do not save the key in the cache.
  6. After connecting, enter the login from SSH connection data and password (you can change it on the page SSH connection data). The password can be entered either manually or by copying and pasting it with the right mouse button. Warning! For security reasons, in Linux systems, when entering a password or pasting it from the clipboard, characters are not displayed on the screen.
