Discovering the Public Cloud


SSH, for Secure Shell, is a connection protocol that is secured by an exchange of encryption keys at the start of the connection. alwaysdata offers it in ALL of their environments.

Remote SSH access is disabled by default. To enable it, modify your user and check the password connection. It is then possible to set up a connection with SSH keys and disable the password connection.

All of our offers are managed ones, it is not possible to gain root access.

Connecting with SSH

Identifierassigned user and password OR SSH keys

These users can be configured in the Remote access > SSH tab in your alwaysdata administration interface (among their shell). The fingerprints for the SSH server where the account is located are also found there.

Administration interface: list of SSH users
Administration interface: list of SSH users

Using a terminal

Open your terminal and enter the following command:

$ ssh [user]@ssh-[account]

Replace [user] with your SSH user name and ssh-[account] with your SSH hostname.

Via the web

Useful when located after a firewall, our web interface lets you use the SSH protocol from your browser. To use it, specify https://ssh-[account] in the address bar of your web browser.

Be aware however that this solution is hardly reliable and slow and does not replace a SSH client.

This interface is not compatible with the Private Cloud.


Fingerprints of our SSH servers are displayed in the Remote access > SSH menu of your administration interface.
