SSH. Connect to Linux server

Via SSH, you can remotely connect to CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu and FreeBSD servers. You can connect to a Windows server using the RDP protocol.

How to connect via SSH:

1. Open the list of your servers. Click the one you need and click the button "Instructions".

A tab with instructions will open. You need three values:

2. Open a terminal (for Linux) or a command line (for Windows) on your computer. Enter the command:

ssh [username]@[server IP]

For example, if the instructions say "user: root" and "server IP address:", then the command is:

3. The connection will ask for a password. Enter the password from the instructions: for example, if the instructions say "password: YHr4mhn7hFJeN", enter YHr4mhn7hFJeN.

Please note: the password cannot be copied and pasted, it must be entered manually. The letters you enter will not be displayed on the screen — this is protection from revealing your password. Type the symbols and press Enter.

Сonnection is established! You can manage a virtual server remotely from your computer.
