How to login to your server using SSH in PuTTY.

PuTTY is a free telnet and open source terminal emulator. I often use PuTTY to connect to my server for some reasons like creating a backup files, running simple scripts, deleting, moving files, and etc…

Below are the guidelines on how to use and login PuTTY to your server.

  1. Download and Install PuTTY
  2. Configuring PuTTY
    Enter you host name or IP Address.

    Example:
    123.45.67.89
    yourwebsite.com

  3. Credentials
    Enter your login username and password. You’ll notice that when
    enter a key password the cursor will not move and won’t even display
    anything like (*) just continue with it and then when you’re done just hit
    enter.

Done. You are now logged in. Please be careful using PuTTY you might delete, move, or overwrite your existing files. This is a powerful tool. If you need further information you can contact your hosting support about it or you can contact me. :)
