Connect to my hosting account with SSH (Secure Shell)

Secure Shell (SSH) is a fast and secure way of accessing your hosting account. You use a client, like Terminal for MacOS or PuTTy for Windows, and different commands to manage your site, so it's geared towards tech-savvy users. Select the option below, according to your hosting platform, to connect to your server with SSH.

  • If you're not familiar with using SSH, you can access your hosting account with FTP or File Manager.
