How do I access my hosting account thru SSH?

If you are an expert Linux user, then you may love to use SSH to manage your hosting account. To use SSH, you need a SSH client. The best SSH client is Putty, which you can download from the link Putty download.

After you launch your SSH client, use the following info to login to your SSH client:
********************************
Host Name: <Your_Site_IP_Address>
Port: 22
Username: <provided_over_activation_mail>
Password: <provided_over_activation_mail>
********************************

NOTE: The above SSH login info can be found in your hosting activation email. If you are unable to locate your hosting activation email, get a copy of the same email by logging into My GigaPros and then clicking on My Emails link.
