How to Enable SSH Access

Enabling access via SSH to your Web or Cloud hosting plan at Hostinger

Updated over a week ago

If your hosting plan is Web Premium or greater, you can access your hosting via SSH. The SSH access type is restricted to your home directory and below.

To establish an SSH connection, first, you will need to enable it by heading to Websites → Manage and searching for SSH Access on the sidebar:

The SSH Access menu option

On the SSH status, click on Enable:

The Enable button on SSH status to allow for SSH connections

That's it! Now you will be able to connect to your account using SSH.

If you have a Single hosting plan and you definitely need SSH access, you can consider upgrading your hosting plan 🚀
