Linux servers are often administrated through the command prompt, also known as terminal or command line. The transmission is encrypted using SSH (Secure Shell). With an SSH client, you can remotely access a server's command prompt.
To connect to your 1&1 Cloud Server Linux with SSH, you will need the following data:
|Password||This root user password is shown during the setup of your server|
|Hostname / Target||Your server's IP Address, found on your 1&1 Cloud Panel overview page.|
Depending on your operating system, please follow these instructions:
Download putty.exe and save it locally. Start the program and in the field labelled "Host Name (or IP address)" enter your server's IP Address. Click on Open and confirm the warning message that appears by clicking on Yes. After having entered your username and password, you can begin working on your server.
