Secure Shell (SSH) is a secure network protocol that allows you to remotely access your server and execute commands. SSH is commonly used for remote administration and file transfers. In this guide, we’ll show you how to set up SSH on DirectAdmin hosting.
Step 1: Access Your DirectAdmin Account
To set up SSH on DirectAdmin hosting, you’ll need to log in to your DirectAdmin account. Go to your DirectAdmin login page and enter your username and password. Once you’re logged in, go to the “SSH Access” section of the DirectAdmin control panel.
Step 2: Generate SSH Keys
To use SSH, you’ll need to generate SSH keys. You can generate SSH keys using a command-line tool like PuTTYgen or OpenSSH. Once you’ve generated your SSH keys, copy the public key and paste it into the “SSH Keys” section of the DirectAdmin control panel.
Step 3: Enable SSH Access
Once you’ve generated your SSH keys, you’ll need to enable SSH access on your server. To do this, go to the “SSH Access” section of the DirectAdmin control panel and click “Enable SSH Access.” This will allow you to access your server remotely using SSH.
Step 4: Connect to Your Server with SSH
To connect to your server with SSH, you’ll need an SSH client. You can use a command-line tool like PuTTY or an SSH client like FileZilla. To connect to your server, enter your server’s IP address and your SSH username and password. You can then execute commands and manage your server remotely.
SSH is a powerful tool that allows you to remotely access and manage your server. By following these steps, you can set up SSH on DirectAdmin hosting and use it to manage your server remotely. Remember to generate your SSH keys, enable SSH access on your server, and use a secure SSH client to connect to your server. With SSH, you can securely manage your server from anywhere in the world.
