4.1.1. Accessing VPS over SSH

Warning!

For security reasons, the root user password is not stored on the hosting in clear text. He goes to account mail after OS installations... If you have forgotten the password, you can only set a new one with the button. "Change password".

Access data to the server via SSH can be found in the section "VPS" in the tab "Access" in the block "SSH":

  • "WebSSH" - connecting to the server using webclient.
  • "Host" — IP address server.
  • "Login" — standard root.
  • "Password" — change the root user password.
  • "SSH command" - ready-made command for connecting to the server via console.
  • "File manager" - opening server content in filemanager control panel.
  • "SFTP URL" - link in the format sftp://login@host/, which contains all the data for the connection, except for the password and port. Can be used to quickly connect using FTPclient. Note The default is the standard port 22, but it can be changed to another server owner or a third-party administrator involved by him.
WebSSH is a web client built into the control panel. It allows you to quickly connect to the server via SSH without using third-party applications.
