What is my VPS or Dedicated Server SSH port?

Customers of dedicated and VPS servers have root SSH access by default. You can alter everyone and everything on your server using the root shell.

By default, all our VPS servers use Port number 44200 for SSH access.

While all our Dedicated servers use Port number 55000 for SSH access.

What is SSH and How do I Use it?

Definition

Comparable to HTTP, or hypertext transfer protocol, which is the protocol used to send hypertext like web pages, SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network communication protocol that enables two computers to communicate and share data. SSH is suited for usage over insecure networks due to an inherent feature that encrypts communication between the two computers.

Usage

SSH is often used to “login” and perform operations on remote computers but it may also be used for transferring data.

How to use it?

To connect to our service, you use an application (ssh client) on your computer (server). You can also use it to transfer data using a command line or graphical user interface to and from our storage. You may make this transfer using a variety of apps and some operating systems. Linux and Mac OS X, for instance, include this functionality by default.

For data transfer, SSH clients often provide SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) and/or Secure Copy (SCP). Both SCP and SFTP are compatible with our service, but we tend to choose SFTP.
