Hi talib,

Per the notes on your account, I see there have been some recent updates.

If you're new to ssh or root access, or at least new to it with our servers, I would recommend reviewing the following documentation:

<a href='' target='_blank'>How to login to your server via SSH</a>

<a href='' target='_blank'>Standard SSH Access vs. Root SSH Access</a>

<a href='' target='_blank'>Root Access FAQ</a>

Feel free to post a comment at the bottom of this page if you have any additional questions.
