    Follow the steps to connect Linux Shared Server with SSH
    • Open Putty, under Connection click SSH, then Auth.
    • Click Browse under Private key file for authentication, then select the private key you downloaded in the last section, and click Open.
    • Click Session and under port enter: 2222
    • For the Host Name, enter your domain name, or shared IP address,then click the Open button to connect. If you see a PuTTY Security Alert, click Yes.
    • You will see "Login As". Please enter your cPanel username and then hit Enter.
    • After that, enter the password for your key file and hit Enter. For security reasons, PuTTY will not show anything when you type your password, it is normal. You will then be logged into your account via SSH.
