While there is a broad variety of available templates, which include control panels, you might prefer using SSH for your VPS management - or wish to install a custom panel.

If you want to connect to your account via SSH, all you need to do is:

Step 1 - Gather your SSH details

To find your SSH details, you will need to navigate to the Servers section, then choose the server to which you want to connect:

And click on VPS access:

There you will see all the details to connect to your account via SSH:

NOTE:

  • If you forgot the SSH password, you can simply set a new one by clicking on the Change button

Step 2 - Prepare the application

Based on which OS you are using on your computer, the next step will require you to either open Terminal or run an SSH client.

OS

What to open and how

Linux

Click Ctrl + Alt + T or Search → Terminal to run terminal

Mac OS

In Spotlight search for Terminal.

Windows

  • Download an SSH client that is suitable for you. We recommend PuTTY

  • Alternatively, click Win + R and type cmd. Press Enter - this will run the Terminal

Follow the steps described in this tutorial to configure Putty.

Step 3 - Connect

If you chose PuTTY, make sure to follow this tutorial to connect.

If you chose Terminal, simply copy this code from your hPanel:

And insert it to your terminal (you can do this by right-clicking in the terminal). Press Enter - the result should look like this:

Type yes and press Enter. Then, you’ll need to insert your password:

NOTES:

  • For security purposes, the password won't be displayed even as •••••, but data is still inserted. Don't worry about not seeing symbols, just insert the password and press Enter

  • Password can be copied and pasted with the right-click of a computer mouse. In Windows, it inserts the password immediately, in Linux - opens a menu with actions.

If the password is correct, now you will be successfully connected to the server! For a CentOS 7 64bit with CyberPanel, a default response from the server will look like this:

NOTES:

What to do if you cannot connect to SSH?

If you cannot connect to SSH, we recommend resetting your Firewall. If that didn't help, you can also reset SSH as well. For that, simply open Settings in the left menu, and in the SSH configuration section click on Reset SSH:
