SSH Access is available to our VPS Hosting, Dedicated Server Hosting, Business Class Hosting, and Reller Hosting users.
How can I get Shell Access?
VPS/Dedicated Shell Access
There are a few requirements for using SSH with your VPS or Dedicated Server. For standard SSH, you can log in using your cPanel username and password. For root access to the server (similar to the Windows' "Administrator" user), please see our guide titled: How to Obtain Root Access.
Shared/Reseller Shell Access
More information on getting started with Shell Access with a Business Class Hosting Plan or Reller Hosting Plan can be found here: How to SSH into your Shared/Reseller Server.
NOTE: While shared servers now have SSH access capability, our large disk servers, known as ld servers, do not have this capability. If your server name takes the format ld###, then you are on a large disk server and unable to use SSH.
