How do I connect to my VPS? (SSH)

We recommend the program PuTTY for SSH. You can download it here:
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

To access your VPS:

  1. Run PuTTY, enter your VPS IP, and use port 22.
  2. A dialog window will open and tell you about a new key. Hit OK.
  3. Use the username "root" to log in.
  4. Use your root password for the password. Your password will be invisible as you type it.
  5. Once you log in, you can run various Linux commands to interact with your VPS.

Please note: KVM clients must install an OS on their VPSs before they can use SSH.
